Reassuring to see McAfee's software for Linux is just as crappy as their software for Windows.
Did they pay him a bug bounty? They should, considering that he's found a very serious issue and kept quiet about it for so long.
MIT Lincoln Lab is the bit that deals with defense software and systems.
So if they use this as their AV I'd guess they'd be pretty annoyed about this. I don't think they do.
But I'd love to know who does use it as their AV.
A classic case of big company takes over big company and niche market product is neglected.
Re: MIT Lincoln Lab is the bit that deals with defense software and systems.
A lot of US gov agencies use it. Just sayin'
Using McAfee is just like.....
Mixing up your toothpaste and haemorrhoid cream.
Gives you receding gums and a huge ring of (false) confidence.
Re: Using McAfee is just like.....
Not knowing the difference between putty and KY jelly .......
All your windows fall out.....
Paris : does know the difference
Oh Mcafee how it pains me to see people still use your bloated and slow software.
Don't even get me started on EPO.
It all went downhill ever since McAfee took over Dr. Solomons anti-virus in the 1990s.
...it is called McCRAPAfee.
Great spyware platform
And AV products make great spyware platforms. It has access to all your files and is not seen as suspicious if it periodically scans all your HDDs. It is also expected to "phone home" on a frequent basis.
...how are these shit companies still in business?
