The security firm has been under fire over the past year after it was accused of working with Russian intelligence. According to a New York Times report, Israel told the United States that its people witnessed Russian hackers break into NSA's computers to steal secrets using the anti-virus software. It lost a lot of federal business as a result, and even UK's cyber security authorities warned its country's agencies against using Kaspersky.
The company can still sell to private entities, but it's also having issues with that part of its businessq: Best Buy, for one, pulled the anti-virus from its shelves. It's even reportedly shutting down its Washington DC office as a result of the crackdown. Kaspersky once offered to make its source code available for review in an effort to regain customers' trust -- unfortunately, the government found that offer lacking. It told Reuters in a statement that it has serious concerns about the law "due to its geographic-specific approach to cybersecurity" and is now assessing its options.
