Once again, the FCC has added Chinese equipment manufacturers to the National Security Threat list banning any USF funding from being spent on them, but this time around the FCC has added Russia’s Kaspersky to the list.

U.S. officials have long said that running Kaspersky software could open American networks to malign activity from Moscow and banned Kaspersky’s flagship antivirus product from federal networks in 2017, Moscow-based Kaspersky has consistently denied being a tool of the Russian government, and the Chinese Embassy considers this attack by the FCC to be ‘malicious”.
