McAfee says he's left Belize, is still on run

Source: Houston CHRON

MEXICO CITY (AP) Software company founder John McAfee said Monday he has fled from Belize using a bizarre ruse, adding yet another chapter in what threatens to become one of the biggest media fugitive frenzies since O.J. Simpson led police on a low-speed chase in 1994.

McAfee claimed in a blog posting he had evaded authorities by staging an elaborate distraction in neighboring Mexico.

In an email to The Associated Press, McAfee confirmed a posting to his website in which he described, in what appeared to be joking tones, how he mounted the ruse.

"My 'double,' carrying on (sic) a North Korean passport under my name, was detained in Mexico for pre-planned misbehavior," McAfee wrote in the posting, "but due to indifference on the part of authorities (he) was evicted from the jail and was unable to serve his intended purpose in our exit plan."

11. First thing I did when my friend got his laptop.

 

I purged it of any and all things McAfee and let him choose between AVG and Avast.

3. He should run an update to keep him safe.

That always seems to work.

It should stop the malicious intruders.

4. Run, John, run....

 

Having McAfee software is like an automatic death penalty for your computer.

I don't think that software has captured malware or trojans since 1993.

Interpol should go ahead and issue a Red Notice for McAfee.

7. Does it seem like the corporate media is avoiding this story?

It's a sensational story on many levels, not to mention that the guy is still at large. I'm not seeing pictures of him, or stories on TV. Is anyone else?

10. If US Authoroties Were

 

genuinely interested in catching and prosocuting murderers, then The Village Idiot and his National Dick would be in prison by now. They are resposible for far more than just one murder, and they aren't that hard to find. This selective law enforcement system really does suck.

15. Hope he doesn't catch a virus jumping from country to country

Because he obviously wouldn't know what to do with it if he did....
