Remove Russian spyware [Kaspersky] from your personal computer? USA removes all Kaspersky products from government computers …

 

Kaspersky Labs removed from all USA government products. Is your computer safe?

Kaspersky Labs no longer operates on any USA government computers.  Is it on your personal computer?  There are various ways to remove if you choose to.   Here’s one link to remove Kaspersky. 

From the Wall Street Journal re Kaspersky products:

During hearings on the matter on Capitol Hill, “I thought the most damning example” came from intelligence-community representatives, she said in an interview. “When each of them got asked would you put Kaspersky on your own personal computer and the answer was no, that’s a pretty strong message that maybe we should be taking a look at this.”

In September, the DHS banned Kaspersky products from government computers, instructing agencies to remove any Kaspersky software and report back on where it was found. The public statement accompanying the ban reads like a declassified version of the intelligence community’s suspicion regarding Kaspersky:

“The risk that the Russian government, whether acting on its own or in collaboration with Kaspersky, could capitalize on access provided by Kaspersky products to compromise federal information and information systems directly implicates U.S. national security.”

Kaspersky says the DHS ban has had a “severe adverse effect” on its commercial operations in the U.S., with retailers removing its products from shelves and an unprecedented number of product returns. All the focus on collusion and interference by Russia put the spotlight on what the USA can do — and what we as citizens can do — to protect ourselves.

Aptos Psychologist Cameron Jackson:   It says it all when ‘those in the know’ refuse to put  anti-virus  / internet protection products by Kaspersky  Labs on their own personal computer.  All the focus on collusion and interference by Russia put the spotlight on what the USA can do — and what we as citizens can do — to protect ourselves.
