I have a question I hope someone can answer for me. I always wonder things like this - what set the wheels in motion, all of the possible vairables at play to bring things to their current place.
It seems anytime there is talk about a large network intrusion for some big company (Google, Yahoo, Visa, BoA, etc) the article, regardless of its author, will have quotes from McAfee leaders. I was reading about Google & Operation Aurora. Someone from McAfee made the comment, "..we never ever have seen this level of sophisticated outside of the military" (quoted from memory)
My first thought was, why in the world is McAfee, arguable the worst damned product on the planet, always throwing in their 2 cents ? Who cares what McAfee thinks ? Those clowns' reputation for sucking is only upstaged by themselves !
I know there is a difference between a consumer-level (idiot consumer actually) product & corporate security - but anything McAfee does is garbage !
I wonder whose ass did they kiss to get themselves always quoted on articles of this nature ? Do they have dirty pictures of someone up high and blackmail em ?
One would think a different company would be the "go to" company for comments on the overall well-being of all things secure...
