And Lithuania forbids Kaspersky's security software!

The Lithuanian government has decided to ban security software developed by Kaspersky based in Moscow because of concerns that the company is involved in cyber spy campaigns.

In particular, the Lithuanian authorities have recently announced that Kaspersky should be removed from computers operating in the energy, finance and transport sectors, including those used by private companies.Kaspersky

The government says the decision comes because Kaspersky is now seen as a "potential threat to national security", explaining that its software is only allowed to run on computers that do not work with sensitive data once the company's cybersecurity service is first licensed.

Please be reminded that Kaspersky's security software was recently banned by American government as Donald Trump signed a bill requiring government departments to remove Kaspersky's security program as soon as possible.

Another country that followed same tactics due to espionage concerns is the United Kingdom, although in this case the country has agreed to work with Kaspersky to address the problem.

For its part, the security company denies any possible connection with the Kremlin, even explaining that the decision to ban its software was mainly due to a "geopolitical battle".

"Since we have no disagreement with any government, this decision of the Lithuanian authorities is disappointing. It seems that our company has been involved in a geopolitical battle, but there is no evidence that we are unreliable, "said Kaspersky's spokesperson.
