    Security threats do not recognize any borders. If we start to boycott and limit cyber security with national borders the malware coders have won.

    I expected nothing less from McCrappy. Of course McCrappy is on the 'approved' DoD list so who would trust them anyway? Also when Finfisher came out it was revealed McCrappy contacted them to 'ensure' their product wouldn't intercept it. That was documented on many security sites at the time.

    Kaspersky has given us no reason to not trust him. There isn't a shred of evidence of any wrongdoing. Protectionism is fine, sometimes, other times, such as this, it's ridiculous.

    Does anyone really care what antivirus Nancy Pelosi thinks you should use?

    So it looks like BestBuy Canada has been a good dog and followed their American masters down this rabbit hole. They cancelled my order from 2 weeks ago.

    America opinion is irrelevant for most of the world, specially since Trump stepped into power :rolleyes:

    Actually, world opinion is a bit irrelevant to American's, since Trump stepped into power. The reason Mr. T won is precisely because the previous guy and his world apology tours pissed everyone here off.

    if i was a government i would never use kaspersky but i am a person and they are not gonna attack me personally thats for sure... the only option i see is if they spy on every user including me but thats probably not the case so i will use kaspersky because it is comfortable for me and i will also use other russian services like mail.ru etc...

    I think Kaspersky security products are not dangerous to my safety, because I have none of Kaspersky products.
    The AVs from other companies are not dangerous for my safety either, because I have no AVs...
    It's okay, what the hell..

    I trust none of those, so I don't like Microsoft too much, but a little more than the others anyway.

    These are the businesses thats all.

    I'd rather watch the scripts, not you?

    - so I don't voted.

    I think Kaspersky is benefiting from all of this in some way. Sales will probably go up... Half the IT guys I know are like.. "So, the US Govt hates Kaspersky? Probably for flagging their toys and exposing Equation? Must be some good smoke, I'm buying that product.".

    I know what I am giving out this year.. Licenses to Kaspersky for friends and family.

    Dude, I don't think I've brought any benefit to K. What a country as important as the United States says weighs heavily on the whole world.

    I use Kaspersky because it does consistently well in independent AV tests.

    But I suppose if there was some sort of Internet Armageddon , there is always the possibility that Kaspersky might be engineered to allow Russian Malware onto my home network. Yet perhaps this is just what I am being manipulated into believing !

    These days you just don't know who to believe or trust. The governments of this world seem to influence the media so much.

    If I was forced to pick sides, I suppose I would prefer the USA stealing my information than Russia !
