The eccentric millionaire promises a technology that will make the Internet unhackable
John McAfee, the founder of the world-renowned IT security firm McAfee, says he plans on launching a new cyber security company.“My new technology is going to provide a new type of Internet, a decentralized, floating and moving Internet that is impossible to hack, impossible to penetrate and vastly superior in terms of its facility and neutrality. It solves all of our security concerns,” McAfee said in an interview with Contra Costa Times.
For the time being, he has refused to provide any details. However, he will make an official announcement at the C2SV Technology Conference on September 28.
It remains to be seen if this new cyber security company will be as successful as the first one he has founded.
In November 2012, McAfee was accused by Belize authorities of murdering his neighbor. He was on the run until December when he was arrested in Guatemala. The same month, he returned to the United States.
Since then, he has been detailing his adventures and publishing funny videos. A couple of movies, a documentary, a book and a series of comic books about his life are being made.
