“Konnichiwa” and hello from the AVAR 2004 International Conference in Tokyo, Japan!

Already in its 7th year, AVAR (short for “Association of Anti Virus Asian Researchers) is becoming an increasingly wide security even. It attracts attendees from Asian countries such as Korea, China or Japan but also from all around the world.

Kaspersky Lab will be demonstrating its newest technologies as well as the already established Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam and Anti-Hacker line of products at our booth, easily recognizable by the green umbrella.

Eugene will also be making a presentation on the evolution of the computer underground.

So, if you happen to be in Tokyo feel free to stop by the Sheraton Grande Bay and have a chat with us!

Dewa mata, more later!
