Kaspersky Lab has responded to yesterday's reports about a hacker attack on its US Web site, saying the attempt was unsuccesful.
The security software company has issued a statement that, despite their attempts, the hackers were unable to gain access to restricted information stored on the Web site.
"Claims by the hackers responsible for the attack that they had managed to gain access to user data are untrue," the company says.
As a result of the attack, a vulnerability was found in one section of the usa.kaspersky.com website. Company personnel took immediate action to address the issue, and the vulnerability was closed a short time later.
The vulnerability found on usa.kaspersky.com did not affect any other Kaspersky Lab Internet resources, including www.kaspersky.com, the official web site of the company's headquarters.
"The company's experts are currently investigating the incident," according to the statement. "We are also conducting a careful security audit of all official Kaspersky Lab web sites and developing a range of technical and legal measures to protect the company's corporate resources from similar attacks in the future."
