McAfee Antivirus Problems: Are you affected?

By Alan Ng - Apr 22, 2010

Following on from our earlier report which informed you about the huge problems McAfee are now facing after a flawed update to their Antivirus software, we want to know just how many of you are affected by this.

As reported from Computer World, computer users have been venting their frustrations over the mistake, on the official support forums, which we understand are no longer available at the moment.

Here is one of the statements in which company spokesman Joris Evers posted on the forums before it was taken offline:

“The problem occurs with the 5958 virus definition file (DAT) that was released on April 21 at 2:00 P.M. GMT+1 (6:00 A.M. Pacific).”

Judging by the response from users, this is turning out to be a crisis for McAfee, a crisis that could of been avoided had certain measures been put in place.

Have you been affected by this in any way? Give us your feedback on this.
