Re: It's not just Kaspersky

Uncle Sam in your AV is entirely possible. But note that there would be numerous vectors for the Uncle Sam profile - from Microsoft's built-in AV systems, to Apple's, to McAfee, to Symantec and many, many others - while Kaspersky is one of the few Russia-based corporations doing large-scale international trade in the AV business. A much, much smaller profile to target. Also note Russia is even more aggressive in hacking / state monitoring than the U.S., and that's saying a lot right there.
