    "...The EU claims Kaspersky wares 'confirmed as malicious'

    The European action calls for a review of all equipment that might be using Kaspersky's products – not just desktop or server installations – and takes things a step further by unambiguously stating that the software has been "confirmed as malicious"..."

    "Kaspersky Lab breaks off work with European law enforcement agencies

    Kaspersky Lab has suspended its work with European law enforcement agencies, including Europol, following the European Parliament’s adoption of a resolution calling for greater protections against malicious cyber attacks from Russia, China, and North Korea. The company objects to the resolution’s claim that Kaspersky Lab’s software is potentially dangerous, saying it won’t work with European police agencies until it gets a clear, official explanation for the allegations..."

    key word : Potential.

    No proof yet of any nefarious 'hidden' code, back doors, malware, booby traps, etc. The sheep ion Govt. are running scared from a guard dog that has not ever as yet turned on them. It's a waste of time & money for no gain but sanctioning the wrong people and will have no effect on the real big bad wolf, Butcher Vlad the Impaler Putin. It just makes him stronger for 'defending' Muther Rooshia against unjustified external attacks by the evil west.

    IMO, it's just a beginning and more countries will start to forbid government usage of software and hardware produced in other countries.
    Even Russia was considering to remove Windows from government computers. They were afraid that MS collects data that could be exposed to US government.
    I think we'll see more of this in future.
