McAfee Leaks Customer Details

First published: 31st July 2009

McAfee joins Baptist University as an organisation that accidentally attached an address list to the email they were sending. The security company's mistake occurred after a Strategic Security Summit held at the Sydney Convention Centre held on 17th July. They sent out a email thanking attendees, and attached a spreadsheet containing the names, numbers, e-mail addresses, employment details, and dietary requirements of over 1400 people. McAfee downplayed the incident, stating that it had interrupted the message before completion, sent a follow-up message instructing recipients to delete it, and put in place measures to prevent a repetition.

McAfee claims that its Total Protection for Internet Gateways product helps you protect against malware attacks and keep sensitive information secure, but they might not be using it themselves.
