Kaspersky faked malware to harm rivals

Recommended Posts

Kaspersky shot themselves in the foot earlier this year (Jan-2015)


I changed our AV to KIS-2015 (small office of 8 seats), but when it came to  internet banking KIS would not recognise my default browser PaleMoon.  Nor would it recognise any mozilla browsers (incl FireFox) for internet banking.

-  KIS "Safe Money" would only "play" with Internet Explorer, but then only with reduced security levels


To make matters worse KIS locked up browser and email client, so we had to resort to Linux machine for browsing and mail.


KIS-2015 was released in August 2014 and the bug was acknowledged in mid 2015, Moscow promised a patch in 24 hours, then days ... then I gave up.

Dumped Kaspersky and went back to Bitdefender.  I blew my money on Kaspersky "because I had installed it" ... another black mark.


Mozilla browsers now work (under Bitdefender) but mail client is still broken ... we are still using Linux for mail
