Kaspersky Labs' slated for Linux virus FUD

Filed under
Linux

LINUX EXPERTS are dismissing as FUD a claim by Russian Anti-Virus outfit Kaspersky labs that it has invented a cross platform virus that can eat Windows and Linux systems.

The story was broken in Computerworld and the source code was posted, so people in the know could have a dekko.

It all made a damn fine headline, but when the Linux people sat down with it they found it didn't actually work on kernels later than 2.6.16.

Full Story.
