Comment for RBC on the use of malware

10 ноября 2022
Bulat Tugutov, a partner and head of the administrative and criminal law practice in the economic sphere at the firm Nadmitov, Ivanov and Partners, commented to RBC on the case of a Tomsk resident, who was sentenced to three years in prison for using the secure messenger Vipole, which hides user data.

The mere fact of downloading the program, without using it directly, should not constitute a crime, Bulat Tugutov told RBC. "What is important is the fact of its use in order to be invisible on the Internet. The use is a direct application of this program for its intended purpose, which in this case is aimed at blocking and neutralizing a means of computer protection," he said.

The Nadmitov, Ivanov & Partners law firm advises on the provision of electronic services, the protection, transmission and use of personal data and the regulation of the internet and the IT industry. The firm's lawyers also have considerable experience in representing clients in complex criminal and administrative cases in the economic sphere.
