Antivirus software accused of providing a “back door” to hackers

American government agencies have been ordered to stop using antivirus software made by Kaspersky Lab, whose headquarter are in Moscow. Pavel Colovkin/Associated Press.

An article in the New York Times, “Kaspersky Lab Antivirus Software is Ordered off U.S. Government Computers” suggests the possibility that the popular antivirus software, Kaspersky Lab had a backdoor opening up computers for anyone to hack, Russia, NSA, Anonymous, etc.

Now, the crux of the matter is that Kaspersky Lab is a Russian company, therefore, the implication being that Russia is spying on our government and thus privy to more of our classified secrets. Given the ruckus the Congress is creating about Russian influence on U.S. elections, one can understand how this will serve the Left Wing of the Democratic Party in their efforts to remove Trump.

For those of you that have not purchased a new PC for a few years, please be advised that until recently Microsoft Windows 10 came packaged with Kaspersky Lab Antivirus Software. Now is Microsoft guilty of putting this security risk on every computer that uses Windows 10? I know this for a fact because I recently purchased an HP laptop and a trial period Kaspersky Lab antivirus program came with the computer package. I canceled Kaspersky and purchased Avast, a popular and time-tested software.

My guess is that the NSA saw the opportunity to further spy on Americans using a real or imagined backdoor designed by a Russian company. How could they not know? My God is the NSA stupid? Nonetheless, you have to think in terms of double agents, secret agendas and misdirection. The bottom line is, would you rather have the Russian FSB knows your personal information or the NSA or CIA?

All those who do not want to be spied on at all, raise your hand!
