McAfee shows up at Black Hat conference

Written by Nick Farrell



Has a venting website

John McAfee, anti-virus software industry pioneer, who is still wanted for questioning about a little murder case in Belize, showed up at a computer hackers' conference where he unveiled a new website to give people a place online to vent their anger.

McAfee who fled the Central American nation of Belize in 2012 after police sought to question him about the murder of a neighbour said he set up the site for ordinary people to lodge complaints on anything from government corruption to bad consumer products.

Dubbed BrownList, carries the motto "It's payback time."

He said that the site taps into anger in a positive way. Instead of getting angry and shooting at somebody on the highway, or yelling at your wife, you can log onto the site. McAfee did not say if that might have saved a lot of trouble for him in Belize.

BrownList offers a forum for people to file specific complaints and for users to propose solutions to problems. Suggestions are voted on by site members who decide what sorts of response might be best.

"Instead of just lashing out, give us your positive solutions," he told an audience of hundreds of hackers taking part in a three-day conference.

McAfee plans to make money by offering subscription services to businesses and is looking for more investors in the site.
