http://www.majorgeeks.com/news/story/kas...eason.html    Kaspersky Employee Arrested for Treason Posted by: Timothy Weaver on 01/28/2017 02:29 PM [ Comments ] Russian authorities have arrested a researcher who works for Kaspersky labs. Ruslan Stoyanov was arrested in December 2016 along with Sergei Mikhailov, a senior Russian FSB intelligence officer. Both are being charged with treason. Kaspersky acknowledged the arrest and stated that the situation preceded Stoyanovs employment with Kaspersky. “The case against the employee does not involve Kaspersky Lab,” the statement said. “The employee, who is Head of the Computer Incidents Investigation Team, is under investigation for a period predating his employment at Kaspersky Lab.” Stoyanov's job duties at Kaspersky was assisting companies who were victims of cyber attacks. He had previously worked for the Russian Ministry of Interior's cybercrime unit. Investigators are looking into the possibility that he violated Article 275 of the Criminal Code, which covers espionage and the disclosure of state secrets. The working relationship between Kaspersky and Russian intelligence agencies may be over. "Intelligence agencies used to ask for Kaspersky's advice, and this is how informal ties were built. This romance is clearly over." Source: Info Security
