McAfee flaw makes Ars (and other sites) appear hacked

It started just after we finished our normal morning news assignments: reports from readers came streaming in, alerting us that Ars had been hacked. After the fifth report (in about 10 minutes), our hearts sank; maybe it’s true and not some CSS problem? Everything looked okay, but dozens of readers couldn’t be wrong, could they?



The question is, can McAfee’s reputation on the web get any worse?

As Bugs Bunny would say, “What a bunch of maroons.” :slight_smile:

McAfee has been junk for a long time now, so this doesn’t surprise me at all.
