    from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_Kaspersky.

    He might be still connected with Russian Security Service (FSB) and that's why he doesn't support whistleblower. However, I still think high of their product and wouldn't stop using it just because of his stance.

    Alarming choice of words and kind of sad, considering this comes from a well educated person.

    I would say it is an excellent reason to avoid his products.

    I think it says something about how he would react if the government asked a favor from him and claimed that it was to prevent terrorism or something. But I am glad that he is so frank about it so the consumers know his stance.

    I guess I will use KIS 2014 anyway, at least until my license expires. It is a fine product that works well for me.
