Israeli Spies Found Russians Using Kaspersky Software for Hacks

By REUTERS OCT. 10, 2017, 9:54 P.M. E.D.T.

WASHINGTON — Israeli intelligence officials spying on Russian government hackers found they were using Kaspersky Lab antivirus software that is also used by 400 million people globally, including U.S. government agencies, according to media reports on Tuesday.

The Israeli officials who had hacked into Kaspersky’s network over two years ago then warned their U.S. counterparts of the Russian intrusion, said The New York Times, which first reported the story.

That led to a decision in Washington only last month to order Kaspersky software removed from government computers.

The Washington Post also reported on Tuesday that the Israeli spies had also found in Kaspersky's network hacking tools that could only have come from the U.S. National Security Agency.

After an investigation, the NSA found that those tools were in possession of the Russian government, the Post said.

Comments: Following is what we published three and a half years ago on March 14th, 2014....

The Internet Anti Virus and Security system which is now being used as "a reference" every time one read news about hacking, infections, etc. is Kaspersky (1) which is the creation of a Russian - with its Global Headquarters in Moscow.

This product is being used more and more worldwide. They have many conveniences - even keeping all your passwords under "lock and key" so that no hacker can break into your "cookie jar". The problem is that Kaspersky owns the the lock and has a copy of the key of your "cookie jar".

Translating: As they gain exposure worldwide, more and more computers have their "security" system installed thus, more and more computers are technically at the beck and call of orders from the Russian Federation. Who is to say that right now, every computer that uses Kaspersky (ours included!) is not a Zombie Computer that could be activated from Moscow to do whatever they wish at the click of a mouse?

It is now that I see why God insisted that I view the movie The Net back in 1995 (at a time when I was no longer viewing any kind of movies outside of faith related ones). When I say "insisted" I mean it - I just could not get away from avoiding the "hints".

You may want to review the plot now. (2)

In the meantime we are going to change our Internet "Security" System.

In spite of the tens of millions of documents downloaded from our servers over the last 19 years, many people still say: "What does that miguel de Portugal know?"..... and they are right!

miguel de Portugal knows little outside of God's toll free telephone number..... since all the credit, and certainly all the Glory, is His!

We thank IMC from the Philippines for alerting us to this news report.
