US and British intelligence agencies monitored Kaspersky Lab

The US National Security Agency (NSA) and the British government communications headquarters monitored Kaspersky Lab and other foreign anti-virus companies. This is stated in the materials published former intelligence officer Edward Snowden on Tuesday, 23 June, on the website of The Intercept.

The materials indicate that the NSA was looking for gaps in the protection of Kaspersky Lab and received private information about clients. The documents state that the security services watched the exchange of data between the installed program and the company's servers, as well as the email of developers about new vulnerabilities.

The newspaper notes that the United States and the United Kingdom hacked antivirus programs and spied on software users and what happened in closed networks.

The draft of the classified document states that the NSA learned about the transfer of client data back to the company's servers in 2008 by the Kaspersky Lab's antivirus program. After that, the security services began to intercept and use them for espionage.

In mid-March, Bloomberg reported on the possible links between Kaspersky Lab and Russian special services. The agency's sources said that in the 2012 year, when several high-ranking managers left the company, they were replaced by people who were closely associated with Russian special services. According to interlocutors, they allegedly assist the FSB in criminal investigations, using information about almost 400 millions of the company's clients.

Director General of Kaspersky Lab, Yevgeny Kaspersky, in turn, called "frank lies" a significant part of the agency's publication. “Much of the material is not true. Frank lies. Speculation, assumptions, conclusions based on incorrect information and falsely interpreted. To sue them, or what? ”- wrote Kaspersky.
