containing customer details.

A hacker claimed in a blog posting that he was able to access Kasperky's databases containing a customer details including users, administrators, activation codes and e-mail addresses.

A posting on Hackers Blog said the SQL injection vulnerability in usa.kaspersky.com is very real, but Kaspersky "does not need to worry about us spreading their confidential stuff".

"Our staff will never save or keep any confidential data, we just point our fingers to big websites with security problems," the posting said.

Kaspersky has admitted a vulnerability in a section of the usa.kaspersky.com site, but said the problem was fixed within half an hour of detection, according to The Tech Herald.

"The vulnerability was not critical and no data was compromised from the site," the company said in a statement.
