Kaspersky Product's Vulnerability is Denied

Apr. 10, 2020

Cybersecurity company Kaspersky Lab is reported to have vulnerabilities in its software, exposing its application programming interface to website abuse.


Security holes were first documented by cybersecurity researcher Wladimir Palant and found in software like Kaspersky Internet Security 2019.


Palant said it was the first time he exposed vulnerabilities and security concerns in December last year. Although Kaspersky has fixed some of the issues in a July 2019 update, other vulnerabilities remain and new vulnerabilities have been discovered since then.


"When I tested the new Kaspersky Internet Security 2020, extracting the secret from the injected scripts was still trivial and the biggest challenge was adapting my proof-of-concept code to changes in the API calling convention," Palant said on ZDNet. " To be honest, I can't blame the Kaspersky developers for not even trying. I think defending their scripts in an environment they can't control is a waste."


Kaspersky questioned this claim and said in a blog post that Palant's security concerns raised in the web protection component of his products and product extensions for Google Chrome have already been resolved.


Kaspersky acknowledged that "whatever the severity of preventive measures, small buggies can infiltrate, and no software product in the world can completely eliminate them during the preventive phase." But vulnerabilities in software provided by a cybersecurity company never look good.


"Antivirus and other security technologies are an extremely valuable target," Craig Young, a cybersecurity researcher with the Cybersecurity Exposure and Vulnerability Research Team at Tripwire Inc., told SiliconANGLE a common target for controversial exploitation because generally they have a lot of access and handle dangerous entrances with minimal user interaction. "


Young said he was generally against the use of technologies that intercept and modify web traffic. But he added: "The fact is, there are too many ways it can go wrong, and often the perceived security benefits are outweighed by the considerable risk they represent."


Kaspersky has been the subject of tragedies in the past, which have been prohibited from providing services to the US government.
