Kaspersky CEO: False positives affected us too, Reuters report does not contain ‘a shred of evidence’ | VentureBeat | Security | by Emil Protalinski

The interesting thing about this @kapersky “false positive” story is of course that the report is very possibly a false positive itself! Instead of having a virus detection engine incorrectly flag a legitimate file as hostile, this report might very well flag a legitimate company as hostile!

I wouldn’t expect the average journalist to realize this when chasing a juicy story like this one, so I take the entire thing with a very large grain of salt.
