Best Buy Must Replace Kaspersky Internet Security Software

Status: Acknowledged
by on ‎03-27-2015 10:40 AM

The March 23 - April 5 issue of Bloomberg Business Weekly, pages 43-44, exposes the close relationship and active involvement by Russia's security services in Kaspersky Lab's anti-virus software's creation and effectiveness focus. Bloomberg claims that "Kaspersky Lab takes aim at U.S.-backed hacking" ... , but the company has not pursued alleged Russian operations with vigor. Since Russia and China are known to produce the vast majority of viruses and malware for which Internet security software is employed, this issue cannot be ignored.

 

Best Buy is a major supplier of Kaspersky software in America and must proactively bring this to the attention of buyers such as myself to whom they have recommended and sold the program. The Internet is abuzz with the Kaspersky issue, and Best Buy must respond proactively.

I can promise you we review what we sell on a consistent basis. I have to admit I don't personally know enough about anti-virus software to comment here. Thanks for the suggestion.

Is this to be further considered by appropriate Best Buy Corporate persons, or are you simply considering my problem as a "suggestion" instead of a request for action?

 

Can you at least re-direct my request to other than a circular file?

 

Thanks

@iww342, as with any idea posted here we will consider acting on the idea once there is enough interest in the idea to warrant action. When I see there is a substantial amount of interest in this idea I will forward it on to the appropriate business team here at our corporate campus.

I think you will have a hard time motivating people to not use Kaspersky. Even myself as an IT business owner it is the chosen anti virus to run on my personal computer.
