    You would think companies that provide anti-virus and firewalls would protect their own websites from hackers right?

    Well, it seems Kaspersky should take their own advice and make sure there are no "holes" in its security systems.

    A hacker exploited a loophole on their US website and gained access to all Kaspersky customers activation codes/e-mails/other personal data!!

    Here is what they had to say:

    "This is not good for any company, especially for a company dealing with security,"

    yeah mate you can say that again.
