McAfee Revisited

UPDATE: So I’m a bit out of touch on this one, but McAfee actually backed away from what they were doing, in no small measure it seems from the stink she rasied. 🙂 Read the full story at Cresta’s blog.

Oh, and I’ve restored the image to commerce websites.

I promise to just let this go — soon as I get this bit of satire posted!

For everyone who still wants to use the McAfee seal, here’s a logo providing "Full Disclosure" of what the ScanAlert "service" really means.

Satirical Commentary on Totally Dumb Ass move Made by McAfee

Enjoy. 😉

LEGAL NOTICE to McAfee: This is satirical commentary covered by Fair Use. If you don’t like it, tough shit. Maybe you should have thought of that before pillaging your customers’ traffic.

HackerSafe? Not Now. Now It’s HackerSOURCE. Yikes!!

McAfee has done something with the HackerSafe logo that I think totally crosses the line.  Thanks to Cresta’s Blog post and subsequent Tweet
for pointing this out to me.

Today, I am pulling the seal off of my sites; disabling all the domains in the ScanAlert control panel; and penning a nasty ass message to McAfee. Why you ask?

The change they made is to the page you get when someone clicks your the McAfee seal on your site. Right in the middle of the page is a link "Attention Shoppers" that leads to Excuse me!! WTF do they think they are doing?? I’m paying them for the seal AND giving them traffic?? I don’t think so.

This demonstrates a really disturbing lack of understanding on McAfee’s part. So bad in fact, I’m not interested in even discussing the point with them. Any partner of mine that could let something this brain-dead-stupid ever see light, simply can not be trusted.
