Kaspersky Lets The Feds Review Its Code

I think this is a smart move on Kaspersky's part. Gets the feds off their back so everyone can focus on the real issue

After weeks of comments from US Congress members and officials about potential ties between Russian government intelligence and the Russian security software maker Kaspersky Lab, a Senate proposal from the end of June suggested prohibitions on Department of Defense use or interaction with Kaspersky products. In response, company CEO Eugene Kaspersky told the Associated Press on Sunday that the company will show its source code to the US government if that gesture will foster trust. “Anything I can do to prove that we don’t behave maliciously I will do it,” he said.
