Dimdows Antivirus Own Goal

When Adrian Smith updated his McAfee anti-virus subscription, a notice
flashed up. Topped by a warning in red saying “Application Wants to
Access the Internet”, it said: “The program McAfee Trusted Advisor
Framework Exe is requesting access to the internet... McAfee does not
recognise this application.”

Having alerted Adrian against itself, McAfee went on to offer him the
choice of accepting or blocking access to McAfee.

(from last week’s New Scientist)
