Bug bites McAfee Anti Virus

A security research firm said Wednesday that McAfee's anti virus line is vulnerable to attack, the second such warning issued about anti virus software in two days.

Reston, Va. based iDefense said that a flaw within a DLL used by a number of McAfee products could be exploited by attackers to write data to the victimised PC. In other words, the very software that was supposed to protect a PC could be turned against its user. Bug bites McAfee Anti-Virus - Security - www.itnews.com.au
