The Bits of Freedom

ESET response to Bits of Freedom open letter on detection of government malware



A coalition of digital rights organizations and academics recently published an ‘open letter’ to the Anti-Malware/Anti-Virus industry, and sent copies to individual vendors, including ESET.

The letter asks for clarification on vendor policies as regards cooperation with government agencies and/or law enforcement using state-sponsored Trojans.

Below is our official response. You can also download a PDF version of this response
