Hackers are sick and tired of their malicious plans being ruined by security solutions provider Kaspersky, so they’ve decided to protest against the company at the 2013 Mobile World Congress that’s taking place these days in Barcelona, Spain.

Numerous individuals holding banners which read “Kaspersky go home,” “Kaspersky is destroying my livelihood,” or “Kaspersky Lab gives me nightmares” rallied at the entrance of the exhibition.

Of course, the protest is fake and the protesters are not real hackers. Instead, this has been an attempt by Kaspersky to promote their products and raise awareness on the threats that target mobile devices.

At MWC 2013, the company unveiled its latest Kaspersky Security for Mobile solution.
