Reuters Quotes Peter Swire on Kaspersky Lab Disclosure of U.S. Spyware

A recent report by Kaspersky Lab, the Moscow-based security software maker, found personal computers in 30 countries infected with U.S. surveillance programs hidden within hard drives.

Peter Swire, Georgia Institute of Technology professor and senior counsel in Alston & Bird’s Privacy & Data Security Group who served as one of five members of President Obama's Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technology, noted that that it is essential for the United States to consider the possible impact on trade and diplomatic relations before deciding to use its knowledge of software flaws for intelligence gathering.

“There can be serious negative effects on other U.S. interests,” he said.
