Forget Russia of the 80s and 90s
Today modern day Moscow is producing legit high quality programmers. And a bunch of them got together and started Kaspersky Labs
the reviews are off the chart, and I personally vouch for their software having been using them for 6 months. My security needs are more sophisticated and the moment I opened Kaspersky Antivirus options and setting, I realized these guys are THE sh!t, as in best.
And don't take my word for it, Kaspersky guys are the first ones who discovered the most dangerous virus on the planet, FLAME
They are now in the news, keep in mind this stuff was flying by Norton, Avast and others with impunity.
The virus was discovered by a Russian security company that specialises in malicious computer code. It made the 20 gigabyte virus available to other researchers yesterday (Monday), claiming that it did not fully understand its scope and said its code was 100 times the size of the most malicious software.
Kaspersky Labs said the program appeared to have been released five years ago and had infected machines in Iran, Israel, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. "If Flame went on undiscovered for five years, the only logical conclusion is that there are other operations ongoing that we don't know about," Roel Schouwenberg, a Kaspersky security senior researcher, said.
