In addition to an article in Wired, The Washington Free Beacon reported in the article "Russian Cyber Mogul Aides Kremlin, Iran" about a major Russian-speaking criminal, the citizen of Russia Eugene Kaspersky from the KGB Kaspersky Lab company:
"Eugene Kaspersky, the Russian cyber security mogul whose antivirus software is used by 300 million people, helped identify and neutralize the US government's cyber attacks on Iranian nuclear facilities and has collaborated with the Russian government, covering up cyber attacks on opposition websites before the December 2011 parliamentary elections.
Kaspersky received his first computer training at a KGB school, and was commissioned as a Soviet intelligence officer in 1987 (this was not mentioned in the article by Wired which said, based on the words of the criminal, that he served as an army soldier - KC).
Microsoft, Cisco, and Juniper Networks embed Kaspersky code in their products".
It is to be mentioned in this connection that according to Putin, there are not former intelligence officers. This is a life-long service.
It is to be recalled that after the publication of the article in the Wired, Kaspersky accused journalist Shachtman in "expressive Russophobia". According to the KGB-FSB officer Kaspersky, the article allegedly contained a large number of inaccuracies, speculations, "pseudo-facts" and "cliches from the Cold War era".
Meanwhile, the Kavkaz Center has every reason to believe that Kaspersky is a Russian cyber terrorist from the KGB (FSB). The fact is that on the second day after the meeting between Medvedev and Kaspersky, Google and Twitter started to have problems. The two web giants - Google Talk and Twitter - were "down" on July 26. We have a suspicion that the KGB is now testing its capabilities.
It seems that the Kaspersky Lab is participating in DDoS attacks against the Kavkaz Center.
It is to be recalled that Kaspersky has nearly 300 million subscribers worldwide. That actually makes it the largest super botnet in the world.
It is highly possible that the computers, on which Kaspersky software is installed, is a global botnet of the KGB. Hence, there is such a high level of SYN flood attacks - nearly 50 million packages - on the KC server.
The Kavkaz Center, by the way, has never trusted any Kaspersky software for precisely this reason.
It is to be recalled that Eugene Kaspersky spoke in a very hostile manner on social networking as a tool for rioters.
