Kaspersky Confirms Reports of Role in Leaking Classified Material

Russian cybersecurity giant Kaspersky Lab said it uploaded secret data linked to the National Security Agency from a personal computer in the U.S., though it said staff destroyed the material and didn’t show it to anyone outside the company. The code was in a zip file containing malware samples that Kaspersky’s antivirus software removed from the home computer, the company said in a statement, confirming earlier reports about its involvement in the leak of classified material.
