Also your privacy may be threatened, Italy investigates Kaspersky's :

But I haven't heard anything about Dr Web's from St. Petersburg (patron = R.F. president Putin). You know something on that matter, Asyn? Users may use their extension.

Do svidaniya, Kaspersky — goodbye
Can you trust a Russian company with your technology? Your security? No — not with Vladimir Putin calling the shots when push comes to shove.

If we're talking about ethics, shouldn't that same warning also be given about TikTok?
Approximately 850 Million users happily share their information with the Chinese Communist party and they are also guilty of committing atrocities on an ongoing basis. Again, money talks and all other things seem not to matter. (Enough of my soap box.)

Hi Damian, let's put it this way - I (currently) wouldn't use any software from Russia.

US says Kaspersky poses unacceptable risk to national security
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/us-says-kaspersky-poses-unacceptable-risk-to-national-security/

Interesting and also considering what else was in the article.
Quote from: Extract
FCC's national security ban list was also expanded to include Chinese state-owned mobile service providers China Mobile International USA and China Telecom Americas.

I'm wondering about all these Chinese Mobile Phones, there are also phones for other companies made in China, where does it end ?

When politic becomes a part of reasoning, you loos all sight of reasoning.
Where can we truly find an American Cellphone?
Or anything else that's a manufactured product made in the US or free world for that matter?
Even our medication isn't produced in-house.
In the US the only thing we have plenty of is fossil fuel which is
currently frowned upon.

Hi bob3160,

Here you find it listed with all the equipment and services that may mean a threat to national security:

I'm surprised there aren't more Mobile Phone makes/companies on that list.

I was even expecting to see iPhone on the list, aren't most of them made in China ?
But I guess including phones manufactured in China would made the list unbelievably long.
