After US, now United Kingdom proposes ban on Kaspersky Labs products

As the Prime Minister's Guildhall speech set out, Russian Federation is acting against the UK's national interest in cyberspace.

Martin sent a letter to senior representatives of all government departments in the country with a warning that antivirus Kaspersky carries some risks for the security of the Kingdom as created by Russia-based company.

"The NCSC advises that Russian Federation is a highly capable cyber threat actor which uses cyber as a tool of statecraft".

Barclays bank has stopped offering free Kaspersky anti-virus products to new online banking customers following an official United Kingdom government warning about Russian software.

He said this could also include departments responsible for critical infrastructure.

In a letter addressed to the head honchos of several civil service departments, Ciaran Martin, head of the National Cyber Security Centre has stated that, "The specific country we are highlighting in this package of guidance is Russian Federation".

"In practical terms, this means that for systems processing information classified SECRET and above, a Russia-based provider should never be used".

And Martin did point out that the NCSC is in discussions with Kaspersky Labs to see whether it can "develop a framework that we and others can independently verify".

Its detailed investigation of the incident in question revealed that the NSA contractor actually disabled Kaspersky Lab AV on his laptop after illegally taking his work home with him, as it had started to detect new NSA-developed malware.

In a press release, the DHS said that Kaspersky anti-virus products and solutions provide broad access to files and elevated privileges on the computers on which the software is installed, and this, in turn, offers cyber criminals the opportunity to compromise those information systems.

A spokesman for Barclays says: "Even though this new guidance isn't directed at members of the public, we have taken the decision to withdraw the offer of Kaspersky software from our customer website".

'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.
