Intelligence Agencies Say They're Tracking Kaspersky Lab

During a Senate hearing Thursday on security threats, U.S. intelligence  officials testified that they are concerned about the federal government using security software from Russia-based Kaspersky Lab. Officials from agencies including the CIA and NSA said they are not comfortable with using Kaspersky software, following questions from senators about whether the software could be used by the Russian government against the U.S. Vincent Stewart, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told the Senate committee that his agency is "tracking Kaspersky and their software." Kaspersky Lab responded with a statement to what it called the "false allegations," saying the company "has no ties to any government, and the company has never helped, nor will help, any government in the world with its cyberespionage efforts."
