“Firm Faces Scrutiny Following NSA Hack,” The Wall Street Journal, October 7, 2017 A4.  The NSA may have been hacked through their use of the Kaspersky antivirus program.  Really.  NSA uses Russian software for virus protection.

If the NSA has these problems, what’s a lay citizen supposed to do?  Not just the contractors you hire (remember Booz Allen (Snowden and others)?  How about Reality Winner, on June 6, 2017?), but the vendors you use.

Where’s PC-Matic when you need it? (Not an endorsement)
