    In Germany BSI (Federal Bureau for information security) just issued a warning against the use of Kaspersky antivirus, because of the risk, that the russian gonverment can use it, also against the will of the owners, in order to spy or to harm western entities… do you have an opinion on the matter ???

    what do you think about the russian government using kaspersky to launch cyber attacks on users of their anti-virus?
    could this be achieved? would the company be to scared of losing reputation to attempt something like this? is it my grandpa telling another one of his conspiracy theories of how the world actually ended in 2012 and we're living in a simulation?

    Thanks for the vid Leo. But how did this malware infect thousands of computers? Are they the same as other malware where for example you receive an email, open the attachment and it executes? Or is it something more serious?

    Makes me think of something. How many times did you encounter an attack like this on everyday basis?

    As an average user, how probable do you think it can it be for me to encounter such things?

    The “gift” icon is default for windows projects on visual studio, it probably wasn’t chosen on purpose plus this seems like a very crude malware anyways

    Easy answer… dump the tech, shop local.

    The "gift" icon is actually the default icon given by Visual Studio to a default Windows app project (eighter Win32 C++ or Windows Forms C# .NET project). That hints the malware was created with Visual Studio.
