Russia: Kaspersky Son was Released After being Kidnapped

Russia: Kaspersky Son was Released After being Kidnapped – Russian anti-virus program developer and CEO of Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab, Eugene Kaspersky.

The son of Russian software tycoon Eugene Kaspersky has been kidnapped in Moscow and his abductors are demanding a $4.09 million ransom for his release, reports said today.
Earlier reports said that Ivan was kidnapped near the office of InfoWatch, a company owned by his mother Natalya Kaspersky, Eugene’s ex-wife and co-founder of Kaspersky Labs. After they paid the ransom which is $4.09 Million, Ivan Kaspersky was release with no harm.

Following the 2009 abduction of the 19-year-old son of Rosneft vice president Mikhail Stavsky, Russian commercial paper Kommersant reported that there was a “gang of kidnappers targeting prominent businessmen” in operation in Moscow. In 2010, two Chechens were convicted in that kidnapping case.

Kaspersky Lab is Russia’s most successful digital security company, and it is routinely responsible for the discovery and classification of new threats on most computing platforms.

“Kaspersky Lab calls on the media to stop spreading rumors and speculation about the events related to the family members of Yevgeny Kaspersky. Yevgeny Kaspersky is working normally, but he commented that the information being circulated is harmful for the company,” the company said earlier today.
