wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Earlier this week, several news outlets reported that the 20-year-old son of Kaspersky Lab CEO, Eugene Kaspersky, had gone missing, with kidnappers said to be demanding €3m (about US$4.4) for his release. Russian news outlets incorrectly reported on Friday that the younger Kaspersky was returned after a ransom was paid. It turns out that Ivan Kaspersky has been, in fact, been returned safely, but according to an official statement from Kaspersky, no ransom was paid.

A Kaspersky Lab spokesperson sent issued a statement late Sunday afternoon, saying, “Kaspersky Lab confirms that an operation to free Ivan Kaspersky was carried out successfully by the Federal Security Service (FSB), the Criminal Investigation Department of the Moscow Police and Kaspersky Lab's own security personnel. Ivan is alive and well and is currently located at a safe location. No ransom was paid during the rescue operation.”"
