Germany: No evidence Russia used Kaspersky Lab to steal U.S. data
"There are no plans to warn against the use of Kaspersky products since the BSI has no evidence for misconduct by the company or weaknesses in its software," BSI said.
"The BSI has no indications at this time that the process occurred as described in the media."
The U.S. government last month ordered Kaspersky software removed from government computers, saying it was concerned the Moscow-based cyber security firm was vulnerable to Kremlin influence.
Kaspersky Lab has repeatedly denied any knowledge of, or involvement in, Russian hack1ing.
"Kaspersky Lab has never helped, nor will help, any government in the world with its cyberespionage efforts," a company statement said. ■
