  1. The Kaspersky application could be open sourced and as secure as can be. However, as long as user data, from your machine, travels through any other country, that country can take any data they want from your machine.
    This is Kaspersky’s way of saying “Hey! Look over here! We’re being good. Just don’t look at the lines coming into the country, okay?”

    1. What I mean to say is the source code is not meant to talk about cloud services it’s about their software security. Cloud service is a separate issue and not all kaspersky servers are located in Russia.

      So you’re bringing up a separate issue from the one the source code review is meant to address.
