Israeli intelligence officials warned US of Russian spies using Kaspersky software


Israeli intelligence apparently had a long and prosperous run of data and information from its own exploitation of the Kaspersky anti-virus products, including using it to spy on the Iranian-Western Powers nuclear talks from which Jerusalem was excluded.

The revelations came amid concerns in the US that Russian hackers broke into the US networks and meddled with the 2016 US presidential election.

In its June 2015 report, Kaspersky noted that its attackers seemed primarily interested in the company's work on nation-state attacks, particularly Kaspersky's work on the "Equation Group"-its private industry term for the NSA-and the "Regin" campaign, another industry term for a hacking unit inside the United Kingdom's intelligence agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ".

The 2015 breach that allegedly occurred via Kaspersky Lab software saw hackers target the home computer of an NSA contractor after essentially using the anti-virus program to identify confidential files.

Kaspersky's complicity in the Kremlin's cyber-burglary has not been attested by reports, although the company and its founder Eugene Kaspersky have consistently denied wrongdoing.

The NSA, the White house or the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C. the situation is not commented.

During a press conference discussing the Duqu 2.0 breach, Kaspersky said the attackers were in his network for several months prior to being detected.

"The Department is concerned about the ties between certain Kaspersky officials and Russian intelligence and other government agencies, and requirements under Russian law that allow Russian intelligence agencies to request or compel assistance from Kaspersky and to intercept communications transiting Russian networks", Homeland Security said in a statement on Sept. 13.

The current and former government officials who described the episode spoke about it on condition of anonymity because of classification rules, the Times said. Kaspersky told the Washington Post the company 'does not possess any knowledge' of Israel's hack.

The firm maintained that its software doesn't contain any 'undeclared' capabilities such as backdoors and that it has never helped any government with its cyber-espionage efforts.

The WaPo article reporting the same events is here It adds additional details about the role Kaspersky AV reportedly played in identifying the NSA material the employee stored on his home computer.

The statement leaves open the possibility that the company knew that its system was used, but simply chose not to interfere.

According to the report, Kaspersky uses a tool called 'silent signatures' to detect malware on computers. "It's also important to note that Kaspersky Lab products adhere to the cybersecurity industry's strict standards and have similar levels of access and privileges to the systems they protect as any other popular security vendor in the U.S. and around the world", he added.
