Germany warns against installation of Russian-owned Kaspersky antivirus

Germany’s cybersecurity agency has warned users against using Kaspersky Antivirus. The country’s Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) advised its citizens not to use the Russian-owned antivirus, noting security concerns over its reliability and claims it can be used for cyber-attacks against them.

The BSI said that “A Russian IT manufacturer can carry out offensive operations itself, be forced against its will to attack target systems, or be spied on as a victim of a cyber operation without its knowledge or as a tool for attacks against its own customers.” It also advises Kaspersky users to switch to more trusted alternatives to avoid getting hacked.
