McAfee is one of the world’s most-used internet security software programs. It is used to protect the computer user from computer viruses and other threats that can attack a machine while a person is online.
Also now famous is the creator himself, John McAfee. The multimillionaire, now a few million lighter than he was in his heyday, has been living the Life of Reilly down in Belize, South America.

Has the McAfee bought website bought off Yahoo and Bing to minimize the story or are they simply such greedy search engines that they are 90% advertising content and only 10% actual news?
