MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) said Wednesday it had found no proof that Kaspersky Lab software was exploited by Russian hackers.
"The BSI currently has no knowledge that everything happened as described in the media report. The BSI is in contact with the US partner agency," the agency said in a statement.
"There are currently no plans to issue a warning against the use of Kaspersky products as the BSI has no evidence of the company’s misconduct or weaknesses in its software," it said.
Last month, the US Department of Homeland Security gave state agencies and departments 90 days to stop using Kaspersky products over potential cybersecurity threat.
The company has denied any wrongdoing and offered to testify before the Congress. The hearing has been set for October 25. The company’s CEO, Eugene Kaspersky, told Sputnik last week he was ready to appear in parliament and answer the questions directly.
