I've had friends who worked for McAfee.com[1] (which has no
communication whatsoever with the rest of McAfee, apparently).  They
didn't exactly instill a sense of trust in what the rest of the company
was doing.  I seriously believe they may really be that stupid.

[1] McAfee.com had a sense of humor about it, they gave all thier
employees t-shirts that featured the site logo on the back with the
words, Now *3* days without a human rights violation!

begin  Paul Johnson  quotation:

 It begs to be asked:  How do we know virus companies aren't hiring the
 folks writing the viruses?

Because they'd get sued, and possibly prosecuted criminally as well. The
AV companies are unscrupulous, ambulance-chasing swine who make a living
out of scaring people with inflated claims of the dangers of viruses,
but they're not _that_ stupid.
