Microsoft Lures Another McAfee Security Guru

Microsoft has added another high profile IT threat researcher to its growing security team, this time luring Jimmy Kuo, a research fellow at anti virus software maker McAfee's AVERT Labs. According to multiple sources within the anti virus community, Kuo has resigned from his longtime position at the anti virus software maker to take on a new job at Microsoft.

Kuo, who has been working in McAfee's AVERT (AntiVirus and Vulnerability Emergency Response Team) Labs since the outfit was started in 1995, will reportedly serve as an anti-virus "guru-at-large" at Microsoft, which is rapidly expanding its security software business.
