In what could be yet another case of a National Security Agency (NSA) contractor's system being hacked, reports are emerging that Russia-backed hackers have been involved in the act.

Kasperky Labs' anti-virus software that runs on millions of personal computers around the globe, was found to be running on the contractor's system.

Reports are claiming that it may have helped Russian spies in gaining access to some critical information.

According to a report by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), Russian government spies were reportedly able to gain access to the NSA contractor's home PC, on which he had stored confidential NSA documents.
