A new cybersecurity system is being developed by the Russian Government that would allow it to collect information from any device it comes across, even if that device has been hacked and infected with malware.
According to the New York Times, the program, codenamed Kaspersky Lab, is being overseen by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry’s department of cybercrime.
The report states that the government is developing a system that will be capable of scanning the devices of people and businesses without having to resort to physical detection.
However, the report also states that Kasperskys system could be used to spy on citizens without any oversight.
The Ministry of Security and Defense has not yet made a public statement regarding the development, but according to the report, the system will allow the government to access any devices in a country without a warrant.
The program is currently being tested by the government in the Russian Federation and has been reported to have been successful in intercepting communications from the internet and mobile devices.
This system, according to cybersecurity expert Peter Eckersley, will be a huge security threat to the country.
Eckersly said that the fact that it has been designed to scan devices without physical detection is a very serious security risk for the country, particularly for people living in the United States and Europe.
“The Russians are going to have to come up with a way to hack into these devices that are not detected, because that will give them complete access to the network and to the data,” Eckers, a cybersecurity expert, told The Hill.
“They are going have to be very careful about where they go, how they go about it, and where they get their data.”
