yet another good news about Kaspersky
So, guys want to be on bad news again. They created a buzz after being caught on collecting and sending user info to Russian FSB and following US government embargo to use. That damaged reputation and others are following US government, or at least thinking. Instead of paying something even if not legally obligated, they want the K-name to be in discussion again. However, IT/Security world is not a Hollywood. Bad reputation is really bad thing.
I would suggest researches to sell Kaspersky related bugs on open market as K-guys are really cheap and in bad shape financially. Or PR is stupid as it gets.
