The way I look at it, Kaspersky is protecting us from the NSA. It's the best AV, and I don't care.

Kaskpersky may be vulnerable to Kremlin influence. But Norton and McAfee and a whole bunch of others are vulnerable to Washington influence. Every national intelligence agency has a hand in antivirus. All antivirus providers either knowingly or unknowningly assist intelligence agencies with spying. Government agents should probably be careful what software they have installed on their systems.

But I'm not a government agent, and I don't handle classified data or trade secrets. Sadly, the only government that has any interest in spying on me is my own government. So when my own government tells me to avoid Kaspersky, guess what I'm going to install?
