News: Kaspersky AntiVirus Source Code Leak

with one comment

It’s been a couple of months since I first heard this as a rumor. Finally, after quite a long period it’s publicly available via torrent and various mirror sites. Earlier today Kaspersky Labs made an official statement regarding this source code leak case (you can read about it here) saying that this code was stolen by a former employee and it was part of the 2008 customer products. That person was arrested and received a a three year suspended prison sentence.

  1. Good for that person. Stealing and using things not really ours can do nothing but harm. Unless of course if you have a permission from the rightful owner. Anyway, regarding this Kaspersky AntiVirus Source Code Leak, in case we got a code that’s being part of the stolen ones, will the company still consider it or do we need to get a new one? If this is the case, how can we be sure that the next code we are going to have is a legit one and is not stolen.
