Overconfidence and over media control (they remove posts that are not indecent or abusive if it doesn't fit their image) has it's consequences.

One software I had no choice but to get a refund over, and will never touch KiS again.

Hey guys, it was a external application that made it easy (SQL).

Well Kaspersky needs to just add this into their program and if it is good then I will use it.

A hack and a virus are two separate things. A hack can allow one to insert a virus but that's still doesn't mean it's the same thing. Kaspersky is a AV/AS company not a anti-hack company.

As for the whole site being hacked, the same could be said for anything. You can have the latest and great security system in the world. But every system has a weak point and no matter how often you try to cover it up you will make another weak point.

I challenge anyone to name a website or server that can't be hacked. To be realistic all hacking takes is time. A computer running windows 95 can hack a vista/OSX/linux computer if the person has enough time and resources to devote to it.

Even the almighty linux has been hacked before albeit that it had help from dumb users, it has been hacked regardless.

I do not like this idea but I do like kaspersky. I have own kasp 2007 which was great. Regarding USSR comment... that just stupid and really stereotypical. You shouldn't judge a company base on what country it is from.

Kaspersky Lab (pronounced /kæsˈpɝːski/; Russian: Лаборатория Касперского, Laboratoriya Kasperskovo) is a computer security company, co-founded by Natalia Kasperskaya and Eugene Kaspersky in 1997, offering antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, and anti-intrusion products. Kaspersky Lab is a privately held company headquartered in Moscow, Russia with regional offices in Germany, France, the Netherlands, the UK, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Japan, China, Korea and the USA[1].

In 2005, Red Herring magazine listed Kaspersky among "Red Herring 100 Europe", a selection of the 100 private companies in Europe and Israel that play a leading role in innovation and technology.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus engine also powers products or solutions by other security vendors, such as Check Point, Bluecoat, Juniper Networks, Sybari (now acquired by Microsoft), Netintelligence, GFI Software, F-Secure, Borderware, FrontBridge, G-Data, Netasq, and others. Altogether, more than 120 companies are licensing technology from Kaspersky, which makes it one of the most widely used antivirus engines in the industry.

Eugene Kaspersky (Russian: Евгений Валентинович Касперский, Evgeniy Valentinovich Kasperskiy; born October 4, 1965 in Novorossiysk, USSR) is a specialist in the information security field. He has written articles on computer virology and speaks regularly at security seminars and conferences. Kaspersky co-founded the Kaspersky Lab, a privately held international company that produces antivirus and other computer security products, in 1997.

Kaspersky graduated from the Institute of Cryptography, Telecommunications and Computer Science, an institute co-sponsored by the Russian Ministry of Defence and the KGB[1]. Kaspersky then worked at a multi-discipline scientific research institute until 1991. While there, the Cascade virus was detected on his computer, which increased Kaspersky's interest in information security and led to his studying the field of computer virology from 1989. Kaspersky joined the KAMI Information Technologies Center in 1991, where he and his associates developed the AVP anti-virus product. In 1997, he co-founded Kaspersky Lab, which was later run for a decade by his ex-wife Natalia Kasperskaya[2]. In November 2000, AVP was renamed 'Kaspersky Anti-Virus' after a dispute with a US partner.

At the moment I'm watching a movie in which Kaspersky is acting in person. Movie consists of 12 parts and is called "СЕTь" in English "Network"... It's about KGB training hackers (orphans) back in 1980's and tracking/controlling their lives as they grow up... It's a very interesting movie. If anyone understands Russian I can share information on where to download the 12 series.
