Kaspersky VPN

Kaspersky was using "HotSpot Shield" for their VPN server at one time on their Desktop AV program.

I hope that isn't the case with the app.

A little off topic but I noticed that while running a quick scan of Kaspersky on a Windows machine that there were a lot of internet packets of the same size being sent out.

I made the assumption that perhaps checksums were being made of all the files on the hard drive due to the packets having the same size.

I did have the default option of sending samples back to the mothership disabled.

The packets were encrypted however and I never got around to investigating further so my assumptions could be unjustified.
