Software guru John McAfee

December 12, 2012

Eccentric software pioneer John McAfee is back in the spotlight -- lashing out at the anti-virus software that bears his name in a profanity-laced video. McAfee,

an American who helped create the anti-virus software industry,

generated a media frenzy at the end of last year when he fled his home in Belize, claiming that police wanted to frame him for murder. He has begun producing a series of YouTube videos, the first of which lampoons the McAfee anti-virus software company that he founded in the late 1980s and that is now owned by Intel Corp. (Reuters)
