A worker from the anti-virus firm, Kaspersky Lab, has been arrested in Russia.
One of Kaspersky’s investigation team members, Ruslan Stoyanov, has been nabbed last December for violating Russian law, Article 275 which states “providing financial, advisory, technical, and assistance to other countries or non-Russian organizations is considered treason”.
Stoyanov works at Kaspersky as a protector for hack attacks. However, Kaspersky cleared that his arrest is irrelevant to his job.
The authorities has been investigating Stoyanov before he was employed in Kaspersky in 2012. He has been working to various security firms prior his employment in Kaspersky. For six years (2000 to 2006) we was working as a major in the Russian Ministry of Interior’s Moscow cyber crime unit.
There is few information yet as of the details of his arrest. By the sound of it, it must be big.
