Jeez, what a shocker, the US government was being hacked for five years and they discover it only now, that's just pitiful. What's even worse is that the government was using McAfee to protect their data, they're better of using Norton, McAfee doesn't protect your computer at all , it only warns you of a threat just before your computer crashes. If the US government was being hacked for five years without knowing than i'm worried, because they supposedly have the most sophisticated software, a lot of good that did them. My advice to them is switch to Norton preferably Norton 2011
