FCC names software firem as a high risk. Huh?
« on: April 05, 2022, 03:30:36 PM »
I found this on a popular source:

FCC Warns That Kasper sky Poses National Security Risk

Link:
https://www.techrepublic.com/article/fcc-adds-kaspersky-chinese-companies-to-list-of-potential-threats-to-national-security/
There are other sources. I find this hard to believe.   ???

Please tell me it is not true.  :'(

I find it very easy to believe. Many governments have banned the use of Kaspersky on government computers (Lithuania, for example) . Other's don't have it listed in any sort of official policy but do not use it (Canada).

in 2017, US and British Intelligence alleged that Kaspersky had colluded with Russian Intelligence agencies to facilitate espionage and data theft initiatives.

Directives banned it from some parts of the U.S Government in 2017.
