US Reschedules Kaspersky HearingUS Reschedules Kaspersky Hearing

In the latest installment of the ongoing saga of Russia-based cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab and the US government, the company has a new date with Congress. Rescheduling a hearing originally set for last week, the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology has set a new hearing for October 25, Tech Crunch reported. News of the rescheduled hearing comes a day after the company was linked to successful Russian efforts to hack the NSA, though the Kaspersky software in question could have itself been hacked through vulnerability. Kaspersky Lab founder Eugene Kaspersky was expected to appear in the previous hearing, and it sounds like he will probably plan on being there in late October to defend his company in his own words. “I look forward to the hearing from the committee and having the opportunity to address their concerns directly,” Kaspersky said in a statement.
