The recent news of hacking of Karspersky's network involved, according
to media reports
stealth of VeriSign certified private keys from FoxConn.
This is evidently only one possiblity. Wouldn't it be also be possible,
that the criminal act was done already at VeriSign? Further, wouldn't
it also be conceivable that the bad guys empolyed much more
sophisticated tecniques than stealing in the common sense, in
particular via exploiting backdoors implanted by them in the RSA
software being used?

Re: What has empowered hacking of Karspersky's network?
In our digital world, nothing is uncrackable, unexploitable,
uncopyable etc. back doors or not -- it is more about the effort
needed to achieve the desired result. A high profile target such as
Kaspersky just needs more effort...
