Kaspersky Lab, Interpol renew threat intelligence exchange pact

Friday 13 October 2017 | 09:05 CET | News

Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab has announced a renewal of its 2014 agreement with Interpol to share threat intelligence data on the latest cybercriminal activities worldwide. Kaspersky said its experts have regularly cooperated with Interpol to share fresh cyberthreat discoveries with police, including a 2017 cybercrime operation that identified nearly 9,000 botnet command and control servers and hundreds of compromised websites, including government portals, across the Asean region.

Kaspersky Lab has also previously assisted in a global operation coordinated by the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore to disrupt the Simda criminal botnet, a network of over 770,000 infected PCs around the world.

The new pact comes shortly after US president Donald Trump’s administration barred US government agencies from using Kaspersky Lab anti-virus products due to concerns the firm was vulnerable to Kremlin influence and using its software could jeopardise national security, allegations strongly denied by Kaspersky.
