I hope it's not a kidnapping. I recently saw the obituary of J. Paul Getty III. He never recovered mentally from his ordeal.

Kaspersky Lab calls on media to stop kidnap speculation

"Kaspersky Lab calls on the media to stop spreading rumors and speculation about the events related to the family members of Yevgeny Kaspersky," the firm said in a statement. "Yevgeny Kaspersky is working normally, but he commented that the information being circulated is harmful for the company."

Ivan Kaspersky, 20, was reportedly kidnapped while on his way to work on Tuesday.

Russian news site Life News says kidnappers are demanding 3 million euros ($4.3 million) in return for freeing Ivan.

Update: supposedly the ransom was paid. If you put the subject line in Google, you will get a translation of this.
