Anti-Virus Software Pioneer John McAfee Found Dead
John McAfee, the creator of antivirus software, was found dead in prison outside Barcelona. Aged 75 years old, was discovered dead in his prison cell hours after Spain’s National Court approved his extradition to the US over multiple tax fraud charges.
It seemed that McAfee had taken his own life. He had been in custody since October on a June 2020 US indictment in which he was charged with failing to file four years of tex returns while concealing assets.
McAfee VirusScan helped to spark a multi-billion dollar industry in the computer world, and was eventually sold to technology giant Intel for more than $7.6bn (£4.7bn).
