Who is John McAfee?

 

John McAfee was born in 1945 on a US Army base in Britain, before being raised in Virginia.

After working as a programmer and software designer for several companies, including NASA, he began to develop software to combat viruses.

In 1987 he founded McAfee Associates, a computer antivirus company.

Eventually Intel bought McAfee and changed the name of the branding - something McAfee expressed pleasure over.

In August 2009, The New York Times reported that his personal fortune had fallen to $400million from $100million.

He moved to Belize and wanted to find medicinal uses for plants on his land.

At the DEF CON conference in LA in August 2014 he warned Americans not to use smartphones - suggesting apps are used to spy on clueless customers who do not read privacy agreements.

He announced he would seek the office of President of the United States in the 2016 Presidential campaign as a candidate of the Libertarian Party. He lost the Libertarian Party's nomination to Gary Johnson.

In May 2016 he was appointed chief executive chairman and CEO of MGT Capital Investments, later announcing that it would be renamed John McAfee Global Technologies.

He then claimed he and his team had exploited a flaw in the Android operating system that allowed him to read encrypted messages from Whatsapp.
