Son of software tycoon Kaspersky is freed Following one of the biggest headline-grabbing kidnappings in many years, the son of software tycoon Yevgeny Kaspersky has been freed, and Russian police have arrested five people.
The group, based out of Moscow, were demanding 3 million euro for Ivan Kaspersky's return.

Authorities managed to save Ivan after posing as middleman negotiating the ransom.

Ivan was kidnapped last week on his way to work as a programmer.

Kaspersky is a top anti-virus, and the entrepreneur is very highly regarded in Russia.

This is the first I've heard about it as well, but I'm glad everything turned out well. Kaspersky is a GREAT AV! I've supported them for years.
