Agnitum, the popular Russian security firm, has announced that it will be ending support for its Outpost antivirus products, by the end of this year.
This news comes a month after Agnitum was acquired by Yandex.
In case you aren’t aware, Yandex is a Russian company which owns the Country’s (and also a few neighboring Nations) most popular Search Engine, of the same name, with a 60% share. You could say it is Russia’s Google.
Yandex also happens to run many other internet services, one of which includes a web browser called Yandex.browser. Despite having the majprity share in Search, Yandex sits at second place when it comes to [...]
A security flaw was spotted in Kaspersy’s line of security products, which blocked Windows Update.
Oh, and this isn’t specific to Windows 10 apparently.

Keep in mind these are paying customers, who were asking for a valid request. Instead of providing a public beta of its products, Kaspersky slammed the door in the faces of [...]
Kaspersky, the security software maker, touted as the world’s best was found to contain a critical security vulnerability in its apps.
The finding was reported by Tavis Ormandy, who is a Google Engineer.
If that name rings a bell, you are not wrong. Ormandy was the one who found a security vulnerability in ESET‘s security products. back in June this year.
I am a bit shocked that a Kaspersky Lab software was caught napping. Naturally, as a Kaspersky Internet Security user, I was just as eager as other users to find out more about this exploit. Ormandy had tweeted a screenshot of Windows’ Calculator app, running under the Kaspersky [...]
