The treason charges against the former head of computer incidents investigation at Kaspersky Lab may be tied to a 2010 complaint by businessman Pavel Vrublevsky, who suspected a confidential information leak to US firms, says Softpedia, quoting Reuters. Kaspersky expert Ruslan Stoyanov was arrested in Russia in December, along with two officers of Russia's Federal Security Service.
Vrublevsky and other sources claim the arrests were in response to the suspects' involvement in passing secrets to American firms including Verisign. These allegations contributed to US intelligence agencies collecting information on Russia. Vrublevsky, founder of online payment firm ChronoPay, had lodged an official complaint for this seven years ago. The December arrests are seen as connected to this complaint.
Kaspersky Lab has denied any involvement in the case, clarifying that Stoyanov joined the company two years after Vrublevsky's 2010 complaint.
