Kaspersky ends all EU work following ban.

Kaspersky will no longer collaborate with EU cyber crime agencies until ban is lifted.

Following an EU statement that referred to its security software as malicious, Kaspersky has frozen all cyber security collaborations with European agencies and organisations.

A recently released EU cyber security report called for a comprehensive review of all IT software, infrastructure and equipment used by member states in order to halt the unprecedented threat of politically motivated, state-sponsored cyber attacks.

A proposal in the report that was adopted on June 13 also called for a ban on software products that have been confirmed as malicious. Kaspersky Lab was the only security company mentioned specifically by name in the report.
