PostSubject: Intel to buy McAfee, Anti-Virus on a Chip?   Sat Aug 21, 2010 10:08 am

News just came in that Intel is set to buy antivirus company McAfee for an estimated $7.68 billion, all in cold hard cash. Now thatís a bit of a surprise.

Intelís revenue last year amounted to about $35 billion (with $4.4 billion profit) while McAfee made $2 billion (and $173 million in profit) last year.



This could mean that someday, all the Intel processors may come with security features that include a McAfee Antivirus. If that happens, it could spell the doom of all other antivirus softwares out there. You no longer need to get a separate antivirus because you desktop PC or laptop will come built-in with one.
