McAfee Virus update causes major screwups by PC Mike's E-Journal
PC Mike writes: Man, heads will likely roll over this.
An update sent Friday by the anti-virus software company McAfee mistakenly caused hundreds of legitimate files to be erroneously labeled malware and be rendered inoperative. It took the company five hours to catch the screwup, during which customers all over the world started to encounter major problems. For many users, the Microsoft Excel program wouldn't even open as a result of the messup.
