Trump Bans Kaspersky… Kaspersky Then Sues Trump

This should be interesting to watch.

Last week, President Donald Trump signed legislation banning Kasperky and its products from use across civilian and military agencies. Now I was going to write about that, but something told me that there would be a “part 2” to that story. And today, it comes in the form of a lawsuit from Kaspersky arguing that the American government has deprived it of due process rights by banning its software from U.S. government agencies. Though given everything that has gone on to date, even if they win, which won’t happen by the way, how much of a future do they have in the US? Nobody trusts them at the moment and I don’t see that changing. Thus this has to be an attempt to keep themselves afloat in the US, or a way to grab some cash if they win. Which they won’t.

All I have to say is good luck to Kaspersky. They’re going to need it.
