Probably, be highlighted in his obituary, along with his other 'civic minded contributions'... if not, you can post about them all...the Elites...will love ❤ you for it.

(Is your bag packed, passport & tickets, paid up on your life insurance, fake ID & non attributible cell phone)

OK you are ready to tell the world
about his 'foibles in life'...

Good Luck

Every Dog has his day,
His has come and gone,
He is now a footnote in history,
He is dead.

OK while everyone is piling on....
I have actually met him briefly back in the early 90's at the McAfee AV office near the Great America Theme park.

Then his son later on, who was on the N+I NOC Team years later.

Both good people.

Personally, I am not buying the suicide narrative in a foreign jail cell routine. It seems "accidents" to happen too frequently to Political opponents and those with INFO on such people.

Regarding the software.
I tested out McAfee AV Plus this year. $24.95 for a 5 user lic. YES it is more memory intensive than others and Yes it does more than most other AV app. Yes it needs too much user tuning for common uses and access issues.

But with that said, it has stopped some nasty things that other AV apps did not on identical OS test systems also.

#8 McAfee had not owned the company in years. For a while Intel owned it, then they sold it on.

#9 I was very happy with ESET for many years, then they auto-subscribed me without my knowledge and it was an insane pain in the dupa to cancel the subscription. That's a deal breaker for me.

#10 Kaspersky for high end rigs. For low RAM machines, Avast - silent, user friendly, small. Both are 'install and forget' AVs.

#11 If there was anyone who could stop the hacking of pipelines etc he would have been the one. But he became anti government and did too much dope.

#13 I strongly suggest a read of the CNET 2021 BEST AV

Avast (Czech owned) "allegedly" collected user data with its browser plug-ins and antivirus software and then sold the collected data thru ?Jumpshot? a shell company.

CCLEAN owned by AVAST (Czech owned) "allegedly" did/does the same.

Kaspersky Labs (Russian owned) and BANNED from Federal systems.

BOTH the 2 reasons I was testing McAfee & Norton again in my retirement mini-lab.

Correction to my earlier statement.
Not his son, but a distance relation.
