I'm am certainly not an expert on Russian oligarchs, but it just seems unlikely (to me) the billionaire CEO of Kaspersky Labs could not be so rich and successful in a communist country like Russia without some ties to even more powerful people in the government. My real fear is the executives really don't know who (what "agency") all their employees really work for, or what code any "planted" employees may have clandestinely inserted in Kaspersky products or systems. This allows them, knowingly or not, to maintain plausible deniability. I don't believe normal citizens with their home computers need worry, but I would think twice about using their products on any government, corporate or institutional systems. Personally, I would not take the chance.
