Enterprises of the Russian defense industry may suffer from Russian-made software.

In particular, according to the Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine post on Facebook, the aggressor country's defense companies were warn of the dangers of using anti-virus programs developed in Russia, primarily by Kaspersky Lab (Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security, Kaspersky Total Security and others).

The fact is that "foreign hackers" use vulnerabilities in Russian software during attacks on Russia's ciber structure. "The use of these programs leads to the interception of computer control, information leakage, the ability to install and execute third-party software code, etc.," Defense Intelligence of Ukraine cites a letter prepared in Russia to inform "organizations operating in the field of defense and space industry."
