McAfee, of Computer Anti-Virus Fame, Wanted For Murder

Police in Belize are on the hunt for John McAfee—the man who lent his name to the famous antivirus company—because they suspect him of murder. According to Gizmodo, which just last week ran a stunning piece about McAfee’s weird transformation into a jungle gangster, McAfee is suspected of killing American expatriate Gregory Faull, a longtime rival who was found dead yesterday, apparently of a gunshot wound. Faull had recently complained to the mayor about McAfee’s “roguish behavior,” including firing off guns around him. McAfee has become estranged from the tech world. He told Gizmodo that he’d gotten mixed up with Belizean gangsters and that there had been “in the last year alone, eleven attempts to kidnap or kill me.” One possible explanation for this slide: It appears that since 2010 he has been posting online about his attempts to purify the drug called “bath salts,” which he describes as, “the finest drug ever conceived, not just for its indescribable hypersexuality, but also for the smooth euphoria and mild comedown.”

    Like many PC users, I ;ve often felt it was more than coincidence that McAfee had a cure for the virus damn near as soon as the virus hit.

    Ergo ipso facto, I’m guessing this fucktard birthed the virus in order to shake us down to fix it.

    Recent developments seem to bolster my long held suspicions.

    Yep, Ditto. I blow that shit right off a new computer. Sooner or later those rumors all started to seem to logical.

    McAfee AV was OK around Y2K. Since then it has been bloatware

    McAfee had crummy software. It used to be offered for free by Comcast, until they got so many complaints that they switched to Norton.

    McAffe software is loaded with viruses, it even attacks your system restore files. I used to think those infected files were done by hackers.. but it makes even more sense that the company wrote those lines of code.. Even Norton and Kasperski have the same vulnerability issues. Every computer I fix or repair, those are the first three software programs I delete. I just don’t trust them, and I hate getting returns on my work..
