The specialists in computer security sphere search for substitution of Russia software at the government entities of Lithuania and government enterprises. The Vice-Minister of Defense of Lithuania Edvinas Kerza claimed this as Delfi reported.

'There are the incidents when the suspicious software is used. It has the possibilities for linking and when the linking takes place nobody knows what happens and how it is controlled', Kerza said.

He did not specify the government entities and enterprises where such threat occurs and from which software it comes but he mentioned that this software is connected with Russia.

Earlier, three members of the Lithuanian Seimas appealed to the Prime Minister with a request to estimate the scale of the usage of the Russian software at the data networks of the government entities and enterprises that are strategically important for the national security.

According to the parliamentarians, the Police Department of Lithuania uses the modules of the finance system based on the 1S:lmone and the Russian intelligence could use this software for the spycraft. The Lithuanian railway uses the Klub-U security system that was worked out by Izhevsky radio manufacturer and it is the part of the military and industrial complex of Russia. This system uses the Russian satellite navigation system GLONASS and it can be used by Russia.

Kerza said that the specialists should estimate the security of these systems. The Head of the Cyber Security and Service and Telecommunication Darius Aidomatis said that the mentioned systems are not analyzed yet but it is recommended to refuse from the usage of the anti-virus programs Kaspersky that is worked out by Russia.
