    It is ironic that, sometimes, anti-virus programs can be the largest security threat. Stuff like this can easily hit even those folks who make a hobby out of computer security things. Well, at least those who run an AV. :D

    McAfee is malware. I had been using it for quite some time, but last time I checked the forum, the number of users with problems were overwhelming.
    Of course, most people who use McAfee don't even know about the forum.
