In Worrisome Move, Kaspersky Agrees to Turn Over Source Code to US Government

Posted by:Security onتیر ۱۷, ۱۳۹۶

Over the last couple of weeks, there’s been a disturbing trend of governments demanding that private tech companies share their source code if they

want to do business. Now, the US government is giving the same ultimatum and it’s getting what it wants.

On Sunday, the CEO of security firm Kaspersky Labs, Eugene Kaspersky, told the Associated Press that he’s willing to show the US government his company’s source code. “Anything I can do to prove that we don’t behave maliciously I will do it,” Kaspersky said while insisting that he’s open to testifying before Congress as well.

 The company’s willingness to share its source code comes after a proposal was put forth in the Senate that “prohibits the [Defense Department] from using software platforms developed by Kaspersky Lab.” It goes on to say, “The Secretary of Defense shall ensure that any network connection between … the Department of Defense and a department or agency of the United States Government that is using or hosting on its networks a software platform [associated with Kaspersky Lab] is immediately severed.”
