You're surprised that someone so driven by greed, someone that would amass all that wealth in his own name, would be capable of this?

Hah, no surprise here.

Entire enterprise of 5000+ servers, all running Mcafee as if it where from the tit of Microsoft.

All work stations in all supported company environments running Mcafee also. To include all credit union machines...

Lets just say for a second this guy had a Tony Stark back door to everything, and keylogs on all those machines.

I can tell you for a fact from where I am sitting, without giving away the company I work for, that he would have access to millions of dollars, (if not billions) as well as classified prototype information schematics, engineering solutions and logistical data that other 'competitors' would set you up for life for. Access Mcafee has to every bit of data in this company is root level access to every byte in every data center we run. If it wanted to it could have slow copied everything out.

Its like RED OCTOBER without the physical sub, just everything you ever needed to know about the build process, down to the notes of how to fix a bad bolt in the various stages of construction.

No we dont make subs, as far as i know, but what this company does make is far more popular.

Yeah that's probably the weirdest post I've seen in awhile. I was thinking "narcotics" was just a vague term for weed until I read further. Who the hell does bath salts?? Especially a rich ceo who could get any top notch drug he wanted. Bath salts up the ass?? Seriously?? I guess we'll have to see how this plays out before I go making any hasty murder assumptions. ............ I thought bath salts were for backwoods hillbillies. What a tard.

Really, anything you read on Gizmodo should be taken with a truck load of salt. They aren't exactly the icing of the reporting cake if you know what I mean.

"taken with a truck load of salt."

I don't approve of drug use or whoring with as many people as possible (assuming the claims are true) but I find very little in the way of proof that he murdered this man. Did he? Maybe, I have no idea. But it really sounds like a bit of a rush to judgement here.

Not surprising considering McAfee is one of the worst P.O.S. antivirus software out there.

Wow. Steve Ballmer, or even Steve Jobs, don't have shit on this guy. This crazy prick is on a whole different level.

From software tycoon to shoving things up his butt. That's quite a fall, kids.

I read this story somewhere else that said, The police raid McAfee home, found guns, drugs, and other things that were all legal (days ago). And also, that McAfee was sought for questioning but not the prime suspect. Unless things have changed in 6hrs.

Him on that boat reminds me of Dexter Morgan. I believe Morgan's boat was was called Slice of Life.

I love McAfee! Local consumers who had it installed and thought they were protected from threats soon found their way into my PC repair shop. Thanks McAfee for the increased business these past years!

Gizmodo = Jezebel.com. Couldn't pay me to click on that sexist, bigoted, misandrist website.
