Israeli spies found Russians using Kaspersky software for hacks

The Kremlin and Russia's Kaspersky Lab, a software maker known for its anti-virus programs, have dismissed USA media reports that the company stole sensitive data from a National Security Agency (NSA) contractor using its tools on behalf of the Russian government, saying the allegations lack evidence.

Germany's Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) said it has no evidence to support allegations Russian Federation had used antivirus software made by Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab to spy on the United States.

According to The Times, Israeli intelligence officials who had hacked into Kaspersky's network alerted the U.S. about the Russian hacking, prompting the United States government to order the immediate removal of any Kaspersky software from government computers.

The hostages were rescued "through an intelligence-based operation by Pakistani troops and the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence)". USA officials confirmed there was intelligence about their location in recent days that was shared with the Pakistanis.

Kaspersky Lab has repeatedly denied any knowledge of, or involvement in, Russian hack1ing.

It said the Russian operation also stole classified documents from a U.S. National Security Agency employee who had improperly stored them on his home computer, which had Kaspersky antivirus software installed on it.

"The BSI has no evidence for misconduct by the company or weaknesses in its software", the German intelligence agency said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

Apple has also put an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel and the iPhone X will support HDR, TrueTone and 3D Touch display. According to Korean website The Investor , Apple is working with LG Display to produce a future iPhone with foldable OLED panel.

As of 2016, the software has about 400 million users and has the largest market-share of cybersecurity software vendors in Europe. But it remains unclear if Kaspersky was part of a scheme or an unwilling accomplice in an espionage effort.

In mid-2015, Kaspersky detected an intrusion in its network and revealed it in a public report, but did not name Israel as the intruder. This access could allow cyber-attacks against the USA government. Eugene Kaspersky, the company's co-founder and chief executive, continues to deny accusations that the company practices espionage on behalf of the Russian government.

The company "does not possess any knowledge" of Israel's hack, the Post cited the statement as saying.
