Bloomberg vs Kaspersky

Some people have already heard this.  I once worked for a Russian Ambassador - a brilliant diplomat and one of the seminal figures in international cyber security - and  he came up to me one day at the UN and said "In Russia we have saying, that once you are a member of the security services, you never leave."  I replied "That's not true in the U.S." and he shot back, "Well, it should be." He was jerking my chain, sure, but as he walked away, I thought to myself, what did he just tell me about Eugene Kaspersky?
