Kaspersky Lab is one of the well known anti-virus vendors around the world. That is precisely, when it says something about security vulnerabilities, we have to take it with a grain of salt since the company has a huge financial stake in having us believe that every platform needs an anti-virus, and preferably one by Kaspersky. Recently, Computing reported that the company had claimed that it was working on improving OS X security in collaboration with Apple.


The article in Computing went on to quote CTO of Kaspersky Lab as, “We’ve begun an analysis of its vulnerabilities, and the malware targeting it.” However, soon after the article was published, Kaspersky responded officially by stating that its statement had been taken out of context by the magazine.

According to Kaspersky, there is no formal collaboration going on between Kaspersky and Apple. And whatever investigations Kaspersky has undertaken to look into the security of OS X are independently done.

The statement reads, “On Monday, April 14, Computing.co.uk published an article titled “Apple OS ‘really vulnerable’ claims Kaspersky Lab CTO” that includes an inaccurate quote regarding Apple and Kaspersky Lab. The article reports that Kaspersky Lab had “begun the process of analysing the Mac OS platform at Apple’s request” to identify vulnerabilities. This statement was taken out of context by the magazine – Apple did not invite or solicit Kaspersky Lab’s assistance in analyzing the Mac OS X platform.”

It goes on to quote the CTO of the company, “This security analysis of Mac OS X was conducted independently of Apple; however, Apple is open to collaborating with us regarding new Mac OS X vulnerabilities and malware that we identify during our analysis.”

Interestingly, Kaspersky Lab seems trying to make Apple take notice of it by popping up in the news times and again in relation to Apple machines and devices. Will that make Apple consider the company’s software for better security? We don’t think so.
