We confirm that the vulnerability existed in the new version of usa.kaspersky.com/support. We analyzed the log files and found requests with SQL injection.

I bet quite a few people are breathing a sigh of relief:

It is a lesson to us all - check, check and re-check your processes and your code.


and never be complacent about your computer/server security/protection :thumbsup:

After over 20 years with CA I switched to KIS and am very happy with the product and the one encounter with tech support, all in all I feel it is a very good product.

I am not very techie with computers but I just changed my security from ***pond (Aussies will know it) to the Kaspersky and the difference is unbelievable! I mean its equivalent to changing from dial up to broadband. My computer is so much faster on the net with Kaspersky internet security 2009.

I have windows xp office if thats any help to others considering the same security I have chosen.
The reviews looked pretty good to me and although I have little intention of adjusting any of the settings, I can always checkout bleepingcomputer for those sorts of tweaking options. :thumbsup:

^^ Atleast they found out how and fixed it. I've used KIS before, but I switched to Avast.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

I am using Kaspersky for over 2 years, and I am fully satisfied with its performance. But one thing I have to say that its anti spyware component is too weak comparing to other similar products and it has to be made more powerful. My system was infected several times by some spyware and tracking cookies although it was guarded by Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.

IMO tracking cookies do not constitute "infection" and their presence is determined by your browser settings. Most anti-spyware programs identify them after they have been installed rather than real time.
Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.

May be, but as most anti spyware detects its presence in the system, Kaspersky must detect it. Because there may some naive person who do not know much about computer operation so they may forget to block third party cookies in their browser settings.

Go point raj29; third party cookies can be a big problem. All cookies arn't bad and all are not good. I don't allow third party cookies.
