The McAfee.com website is full of security mistakes that could lead to cross-site scripting and other attacks, researchers said in a post on the Full Disclosure site on Monday. The holes with the site were found by the YGN Ethical Hacker Group, and reported to McAfee on Feb. 10, YGN says, before they were publicly disclosed to the security/hacking mailing list.

No big shocker now is it? They're a crap provider and I/we all knew this a long time ago since they got booted out of most ISP contracts etc...

ohhh good old Mcafee how this is not surprising. Now reading this makes me freaked out the next time i go to mcafee's site hopefully it will not redirect me to a fake av rofl. Mcafee had an accident back in 2009 that completely disabled computers from booting up.
