Engadget has an update from Kaspersky about whether they are really working with Apple or not:

The article reports that Kaspersky Lab had “begun the process of analyzing the Mac OS platform at Apple’s request” to identify vulnerabilities. This statement was taken out of context by the magazine – Apple did not invite or solicit Kaspersky Lab’s assistance in analyzing the Mac OS X platform.

That doesn’t sound so much like the publications fault, as much as Kaspersky stretching the truth. Good luck working with Apple now, Kaspersky.
