Russian cybersecurity and antivirus vendor Kaspersky has announced today the availability of KasperskyOS, its secure operating system aimed at network devices, industrial control systems and the Internet of Things.
In a post on his official blog, Eugene Kaspersky (chief executive of the company) revealed that this project has been in the works for 14 years, and that it was known under the codename 11-11. The latter was due to the original concept being conceived on November 11.
Malware authors are attempting to hide behind Russia's reputation as digital crime centre to throw investigators off their scent, a security firm has found.

A New Zealand court ruled on Monday that internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom could be extradited to the United States to face charges relating to his Megaupload website, which was shut down in 2012 following an FBI-ordered raid on his Auckland mansion.
The Auckland High Court upheld the decision by a lower court in 2015 on 13 counts, including allegations of conspiracy to commit racketeering, copyright infringement, money laundering and wire fraud, although it described that decision as "flawed" in several areas.
After a nearly decade-long project to move away from Windows onto Linux, Munich has all but decided on a dramatic u-turn. It's likely that, by 2021, the city council will start to replace PCs running LiMux (its custom version of Ubuntu) with Windows 10.
Going back maybe 15 or 20 years, it was seriously debated as to when Linux would overtake Windows on the desktop. When Ubuntu was created in 2004, for example, it was with the specific intention of replacing Windows as the standard desktop operating system.
A hacker defaced a presidential campaign fundraising website for Donald Trump with a little help from a DNS misconfiguration issue.
On 19 February, an actor known as "Pro_Mast3r" defaced the site secure2.donaldjtrump.com.
The site's server, which is down as of this writing, was not linked from the Trump Pence campaign website. However, its certificate was legitimate. That suggests in all likelihood that Donald Trump, who took until early January 2017 to agree that Russia had hacked the DNC back in June 2016, actually used the server to fund his presidential campaign.
