McAfee Security Software Name Change

McAfee Security Software (antivirus etc) is changing its name this year to Intel Security.

Intel acquired McAfee for $7.7 billion and seem to be keen to disassociate themselves from the notoriously controversial John McAfee, original founder of the company.

John McAfee’s reaction to the name change was’

“I am now everlastingly grateful to Intel for freeing me from this terrible association with the worst software on the planet. These are not my words, but the words of millions of irate users. My elation at Intel’s decision is beyond words.”

No love lost between those two parties!!

(The other two major anti virus / security software suites are Symantec Norton Security and AVG Internet Security. There are others too.)
