Kaspersky Labs, a Moscow-based antivirus software company, faces a sales ban on its products by the US Commerce Department due to concerns over potential exploitation by the Russian government to harm US national security. The ban follows President Biden's sign of a law that may lead to a similar fate for TikTok if its Chinese parent company doesn't divest from it. This unprecedented move against cybersecurity products emphasizes geopolitical tensions over principles of open internet access and may not align strictly with evidence of the company's threats. Kaspersky denies US security threats, citing their longstanding record of contributing to the protection of US interests.
