Amanda Milius Tells Us About Her Latest Film Projects
"Hey folks, happy to be here. We're having fun doing America first. We are talking with my good friend Amanda milius, film maker, extraordinaire, who has an interesting project that I'm dying to see because John McAfee is one of the world's wild men. And his whole tail end demise and all of that, you've got some interesting stuff going on about that. Tell us where the projects it's now. Well, so the company is building a handful of docs at one time. We've got the Doc fund, and then we've got the scripts. And what I'm trying to do instead of doing one movie at a time, I'm trying to create a machine and a company. And we all are trying to create an industry, right? So these things take a little bit longer than just shooting out one movie after another, but I feel like that's my kind of, I hate to say this really my gift to the movement is that I know how to do these things. It's not just about me. It's not just about me making a movie after a movie. I want other directors to be able to make quality movies that can stay on big platforms that can make a huge difference. And that's kind of boring skill that I have. But it's something that I can lend to the movement. So the bigger picture is the company and we have such loyal humans working with us that it's like it's a blessing. I love your crew. You know, my guys. Yeah, they're fun. For a while. And they're great. And I love them. And so we've got, you know, we've got our work cut out for us.

"Through security and how he was arrested. They couldn't stop him anywhere. All they had to do was really just flag his passport, so they just waited until that certain time. Yeah. It's all very strange. It's very strange. Yeah, it seems like it was very strategic on their behalf, right? Where can we find the most sympathetic nation that will do what we want them to do? And it sounds like that's kind of what's happening in Spain right now is certain poems may have been Greece that are holding back the free flow of information and the release of his body. Right. That was to be expected, honestly. I just didn't think that it would not be releasing his body. You know, there's no, there's no reason to continue to hold the body. And that is an interesting thing. It's like because his body had so many unique different tattoos. It's almost like that couldn't be faked. Like, they could maybe fake his head because when somebody's passed away, they don't really kind of look like they normally do, right? But for them not to show you his body at all. Is strange, right? Because you can be like, no, that's not his tattoo, or where's that tattoo? And so if they just showed you the head, that would make me, that would make me question the narrative tremendously. Yes, and it has very much some. No, it's not fair because they don't allow you to have the closure you need, right? Like, the world needs closer on this thing. And they're not allowing you to have it. So regardless, that's just a completely unfair scenario and it goes back to showing how powerful the government is over us. They don't care what we want, right? They want what they want and the powers that be want what they want, not what's good or what's right for the people. And so is this another piece of the amazing history of John McAfee, right? Ending John McAfee ending in a mystery is almost fitting. Isn't it? It's almost like a mystery that's not going to be solved. That's John McAfee. Yeah. Yeah. That's true. Well, what does what do you think the future looks like for you? What do you want to do? You're a young woman. You've got many years before you. There's always opportunity. Obviously, you have a mission right now in need closure on this chapter, but what's next for Janice? Honestly, it's hard to say, you know? I can't really make plans for the future. You know, I mean, I think about things and what I want to do obviously in some way keep drawing message alive. The best way that I can and to share who he was to me, who I know him to be. Maybe the real John McAfee, you know, everybody, not everybody got to see that. You know, some people got to see glimpses of it, but no, I got to see a lot of it. And so I would love to share that with the world. I wonder, you know, he played the piano, was a musician and a songwriter, have you ever thought about releasing his music so that a McAfee album? Yeah, you know, I have thought about it. You know, I should he actually taught himself that way. Where he had some tutoring and then he kind of taught himself that tune that he almost like, yeah, of course. I want to do all of these things. I'm seeing videos of just us at home and. So I think there will be things down the line, but first, first things first, you know, I need to be able to learn to rest. Are you not getting any help from anybody other than people that in your friend circle that are supporting you and signing petition? Is there anybody with authority that is coming alongside and trying to help this accelerate? I have a friend here in Spain some of John's friends. Outside of that, I don't think anyone will really can. Well, I guess no, not as of yet, not that I'm not looking for the assistance, but not as of yet. But for, you know, obviously after he passed away I kind of didn't go into hiding, but I just kind of have to take a step back and give myself some time to grieve and go through all of those emotions. Privately as opposed to having some meltdown on Twitter or something. So a lot of people are beginning to reach out again. And whereas a lot of people were reaching out. Initially, but I was just overwhelmed with, you know, people who, you know, pulling me or trying to pull me this way and that way. And so I just had to take a step back and so I would imagine that there are lots of people that want to get involved and help and so this was the petition was the way that I got the attorney approved. Sort of a benign way that we could kind of get the world's attention on the situation here. So that's not really leads the question is what can we do, right? So I mean, I know there's a lot of people out there on the crypto world who just totally admired John McAfee. Some people, you know, maybe not so much, thought he was a little out there, but what could we do to kind of help avenge the scenario, right? What can we do as a collective community of, you know, there's a 100 million Ethereum wallet holders out there. If we can have a percentage of them, you know what, help out on this petition or what's the call to action that we need to help Janice McAfee close at the close this circle on this? So right now he has the petition, please share the petition far and wide and just share these interviews as I'm doing them just to let everybody know what's happening. And the plan is that if these if the petition does not get enough attention brought to the situation and there will be more drastic measures that will be employed. But that will be a little bit down the line. And so for right now, the petition is the best way to just get the word out about the situation. And there will be more news of a further sort of call to action coming in the coming weeks. Oh, good. Well, I'm glad to hear that and hope you'll keep us updated for everybody that wants to sign the petition. You could either go directly to change dot org and look for John McAfee searching or go to our show notes of bad code that I and Ford slash 6 one four and we'll link there. There's a link to John's tweet where he said, if he was going to be suicide, it was not by his hand. It would seem that with the one year anniversary coming up, that's a great time to get some awareness around the petition, right? Because it's almost like, that's a notable date, one year ago, oh by the way, signed this petition. So like if you're a PR person or an ocean people in PR and want to maybe help activate that as well for Janice and team McAfee, that would be that would be awesome to help you get the word out in a large way. Yes, that would be much appreciated. We do have plans for the petition for the anniversary, obviously. And so yes, any way that anyone can help it would be much appreciated. Well, James, we do appreciate you coming on. Is there anything else you would like to share with us and subjects we haven't talked about that or on your mind? No, I think we touched on everything..

"And welcome friends all over the blue ball that is orbiting through this massive expanding universe at rates that are mind-blowing. This is the bad crypto podcast. I am Joel Kahn, orbiting around my condo, it rates that are normal for a human being, and that is Travis Wright, orbiting around his own, where do you orbiting around? I'm orbiting around the microphone right now. You're making me do this. My voice was hello. And we're doing right here. I do miss John McAfee. It's been, you know, I always wish, oh, we hit episode 500, too bad, you know, wish you would have been here with us. So we just hit episode 600. He was the Centennial episode and misses tweets and, you know, whatever you thought of the guy, he was definitely a character who really seemed to care about people about the human race and about crypto. I do agree. I mean, he was a very interesting guy. Enjoyed his banter. You know, he was very, he was a very, I wouldn't say divisive, but he was somebody who definitely brought up opinions, right? Like people are like, oh, John McAfee. Oh, wow, he's a charlatan. Oh, he's brilliant. Oh, he's amazing. Oh, he's a weirdo. Like, people had an opinion on him. He was not somebody who you've never heard of. Everybody had heard of this guy. Right? Or had his software installed on their computer. Which he disowned, right? McAfee got purchased and the software company and he didn't like what it ended up becoming. And always spoke out against it. Yep. Always spoke out against it. He was always, he was always really funny on the show with us, too. Yeah. So people. Please. People, please, yeah. The John McAfee accents very good. So this right here is a really timely interview, knowing that John has passed away for almost one year. They still have not released the body. Yep. And she is obviously she's still grieving, but she felt like she needed to start bringing this message out and encourage you guys to listen and sign the petition. Let's get to our talk with Janice McAfee. We are absolutely delighted to have with us the wife of the late John McAfee today who we've not interviewed on this show before, but she's popped her head in on more than one instance because John was a guest and a friend of the show. We had him on 5 times episode number 100. Number 200, number 281, number 400 and then for virtual blockchain week and we're past 600 now, but this would be the honorary Centennial. So a Janis McAfee, welcome to the bad crypto podcast. Thank you for having me. It's good to be here. Yeah, Travis mentioned before we began recording that you're looking healthy and you're working out, you're taking care of yourself. Yeah, I'm trying to just mostly just stay busy. You know, as you can imagine, it's a very stressful situation. And I'm here alone. I don't have family here or our Friends. So yeah, just kind of trying to stay busy. So I don't go crazy. What does stay busy look like for you? What do you spend your time? Exercising, you know, going for walks on the beach, you know, I go out to dinner alone, you know, but it's. I don't know, it's difficult because every moment, there's really not any moment of the day where I'm not reminded of why I'm here and what's happening, you know? So, you know, so I've got my music, I've got music that I listen to and kind of just try to help ease the stress of the situation. Trev, just so we can be linear about this. I'm going to let you ask the question but I just want to bring up the story here from Reuters June 24th, 2021, the headline was larger than life mogul. John McAfee dies in Spain by suicide lawyer, says, and we're going to link all these in the show notes of bad code IN slash 6 14. So you can read that just wanted to give some context here. Go ahead, trap. Yeah, you know, we love John. You know, I had a chance to meet him a couple of times. And on the crypto cruise and just always a life of the party, interesting guy. And I don't think he actually recognized me either in time that he saw me even though that we've been because both times I met him. He was either drunk or something. I don't know, but he was always hilarious. But he was always kind and generous with his time, so it's a great memories with that guy. Yeah, he's definitely missed his presence is definitely missed. And he was probably drunk. He's probably drunk. That's probably one reason how it's like, as you're taking care of yourself over those lines, probably not as much alcohol in the house and parties. This is very true, actually. Those are some of my favorite tweets whether it'd be like, here he is. He's at the piano and he's writing a song and you look around and he's surrounded by people that everybody's partying. It's like, well, it's way more partying in his 70s than I do in my 40s. That's for damn sure. I have tuned that down. So I was looking through some tweets and I saw this tweet from November 30th, 2019 from John. And he says this. He goes, getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect, we're coming for you, McAfee. We're going to kill yourself. So I got a tattoo today just in case if I suicide myself, I didn't. I was whacked. Check my right arm, whacked only available on McAfee next dot com. He's got a tattoo that says whacked on it. So that's, to me, is verification that whatever suicide story is out there can't possibly be accurate because he talked that he wouldn't and even got.

Is FBI's Magic Lantern the Ultimate Keylogger?
"This malware called magic lantern. And i find it fascinating. It usually infects a computer through an email attachment. You get email which says to open the attachment and when you do zane. Your computer is infected. And what magic lantern does. Is it record your key strokes and sends everything you type back to a central system so the hackers can see everything you type now of course with a key stroke logger like this. It can pick up any message. You send the people private chats and of course your passwords to who's the shady hacking group that uses magic lantern the f. b. i. In two thousand one someone issued a freedom of information request and got back information. The fbi uses this magic lantern malware to capture key strokes on target computers. No i'm under the impression that the fbi would need to get permission to use the software like a search warrant or something so this would classify magic lantern to be a lawful intercept mechanism meaning. They had permission to basically wiretaps on one. But this sparked a debate in the security community. The question was if the fbi has legal permission to eavesdrop on someone by using magic lantern should antivirus and security companies detect and report on this activity. Of course the fbi would like to go unnoticed in any kind of stealth mission and would rather antivirus companies not alert when they see this but on the other hand. That's the whole point of antivirus software to alert. When something is going on and shouldn't be happening. F secure antivirus company based in finland said right away that they would absolutely report on this but they're in finland the fbi is in the us. Mcafee an american antivirus tools said they would not alert the user if the tool saw magic lantern trigger and that it would ignore it later. They denied saying they're saying they do. In fact alert when magic lantern is detected on a computer but this opens a door to a strange world of allies and enemies. And it's hard to know who to trust when the software you buy might be lying to you or when the fbi is busy infecting people with malware to spy on them.

The striped helix you can often see hanging about the barber shops so why not cybersecurity professionals in response nick bowen wrote quote. That's really interesting.

Just in case if i suicide myself i didn't. I was wacked. Check my right arm and quote. This refers to the word dollar signed wacked which he tattooed on his right bicep. This tweet started rumor about a mcafee. Deadman's switch thirty one terabytes of incriminating data about corrupt officials and the governments.

She was only shown his head and that the rest of his body was covered with a sheet. This prompted more murder allegations amongst the self pointed detectives of the internet. So what do you get when you take a hybrid sexual drug enthusiast gun tooting paranoid and add some serious money to the mix. This is what you get a life so bizarre so unbelievably extreme. That people will tell it story. Even after your long gone in fact several hollywood producers to make bio pic of mcafee's life based on davis wires article. It's working title king of the jungle. It is rumored that johnny depp and michael. Keaton are interested in playing mcafee. It's tempting to see. John mcafee's life as proof that he not present culture. If you have enough money you can do whatever the heck you want. Murder rape tax evasion. You can get away with practically anything if you have enough cash in the bank and bill empathy and regard for consequences. But i think that would be the wrong conclusion. Sure john mcafee's wealth allowed him to indulge his thrill seeking personality to the absolute limit is charm name money and good looks continually opened career doors and border crossings for him but in the end it turns out. That mcafee didn't have cue money after all if we define q money as the amount of money required in order to be able to do anything without facing repercussions. The mcafee simply didn't have enough money to do just that. There's little doubt that john mcafee knew how to manipulate the media. He was insanely smart full of charm and charisma and he knew how to take advantage of the public's curiosity in order to make even more money but in the end he couldn't escape from the law. In spite of all his money and charisma he ended his life in prison cell. Waiting for trial that in all probability would ended in a long jail sentence. And think this says something good about our society. It's good to know that even people as rich as mcafee aren't above the law sure might take the law longtime to get them. And maybe some of them like jeffrey epstein and mcafee will choose to take their own lives so as to not face the consequences of their actions but in the end they weren't above the law after all which raises an interesting question. Is there such a thing as real money..

In various companies the eighties marked the rise of microcomputers such the apple to commodore pet amiga one thousand and many others computers which until then were only available to military academic and business organizations suddenly became accessible to the greater public. Lots of people became interested in programming and many of them figured out independently. How to write self replicating programs. That is computer viruses. The first virus for personal microcomputer was the elk cleaner for the epa to written in nineteen eighty two. He took four more years for the first. Ibm pc virus to make an appearance.

Not bad considering. That internet wasn't yet available to the public and sharing of software in data was mostly done via sneakernet that is kids wearing snickers swapping pirated software on floppy disks in nineteen eighty six. John mcafee came across the brain virus. Curious you read the viruses code and quickly realized the source of its power. The virus was a self replicating program a foreign and highly unusual concept to most programmers back then and even to most modern developers. This idea both terrified and fascinated mcafee in it. He saw an international threat and a grand business opportunity so he decided to seize the rare opportunity and created the first commercial antivirus software. We don't have a lot of information about that particular software but it is very likely that mcafee used the same technique used by almost all other. Antivirus programs created back then. Signature matching basically the antivirus software would keep database of signatures snippets of code. They can from all known viruses found in the wild and scanned the computer for code matching any of these signatures. A simple yet effective way to detect already known viruses as long as there weren't too many of them naturally with buckets of charisma and an ability to break down complex concepts to an easy. To understand sales speech he booked interviews with every media outlet. That will have him and went on tour to sell his cure for the virus. It was a little bit of rocho in a tv interview. Snippet from nineteen eighty eight mcafee informed the yet unaware of population that quote. I see infections of small companies. Where every computer has become infected and the company is near collapse from financial loss. We're seeing a new virus arrive on the scene at the rate of about one month now. Most of the new viruses are worse than the old viruses because they are more subtle more sophisticated and the cause a great deal more damage and quote and it worked within five years half of fortune. One hundred companies had installed mcafee antivirus software on their computers by nine hundred. Ninety mcafee associates was making five million dollars a year in revenue with hardly any overhead expenses. Mcafee even went on to write a book by the name quote computer viruses worms data hitler's killer programs and other threats to your system the early nineteen nineties so a dramatic rise in the number of new viruses and sparked bouts of panic in the public. Mostly fueled by exaggerated reports in the media by reporters themselves knew very little about the eat novel phenomena that demand for mcafee antivirus software skyrocketed and the company's revenue increased tenfold making mcafee associates viable.

"Come at me bro. i'm not scared. What if he really believes. I'm jay and i'm just putting out these era. I don't necessarily believe this. But what if he does truly believe that the are out to get him for something whatever that thing is and and so if we understand that then maybe it explains his actions a little better. I i don't know it's tough to put our selves in his shoes. Especially if you believe that he killed his neighbor. There's some scenarios where he does and doesn't kill his neighbor so we just we don't know yet is important and that's a good point because it's important to understand that from his perspective way. He's explained it this Fleeing the authorities is only a reaction to an escalating pattern of harassment and intimidation. That's that's the way that he typically frames it. And how do we know that. Because again he did so many interviews on the run and he claims that there was a conspiracy afoot against him that if he were thrown in jail and believes he would be silenced because of shadowy forces that were afraid of the information he possessed. This is the beginning of his time. Alluding to what's called a dead hand system or a dead man switch. Were kill switch. And that's you know if you've listened to show for while you're familiar with this A lot of a lot of powerful individuals and organizations have things like this the ideas that you set up quick and dirty idea is that you set up a system or mechanism of some sort that requires you to check in to verify your safety. Freedom in health at any given frequency. And then when you fail that check in or when you don't make that verification it triggers an automated mechanism to release whatever your Blackmailer kompromat is. It's pretty effective when it works. But the big question for a lot of people in the conspiracy world now is how come. We hear so much about these. But we don't see them. It's sort of like the informational equivalent of having like a suicide vest on or something and saying you know if you you attack me. You're all going to go down with me. literally be as simple as an email timer to- right or attack or a social media post. I mean there's like we all know that so many social media managers use these very elaborate scheduling systems. Where you know they don't do it when it comes out. They have them scheduled weeks advance. Sometimes that'd be just as Probably more effective honestly is releasing this stuff like as a tweet everyone or it could be more targeted. Yes absolutely and this. This is going to play a big role in the story which continues to unfold today so he had clearly. He made a calculation clearly and his logic was like we said that by staying in the public i he was safer than he would be if he was fully like off the grid underground even had a blog that a updated on the regular underground for about a month and a half. And during this time you will. i'm. I'm laughing because it's a weird statement during this time. The government of believes is trying in a way to play a little bit nice because at least in their public statements. We don't know what goes on in the back rooms right. The prime minister at the time. A guy named dean barrow seems at a loss. Because they're the government's continually say look again. Hey john if you're listening we haven't officially called you. A murder suspect we just were pursed of interest. Is you're the neighbor you'll love guns gotta temper or just saying there's no smoking gun but we need to talk to you to investigate this crime at one point we he's referring to mcafee d. Prime minister barrows says. I don't wanna be unkind to the gentleman. But i believe he's extremely paranoid even augurs which is exactly what you would say if you wanted to paint him as like as a crazy person. Maybe he's watching it matt and he's going yeah bonkers like fox. I just don't know that he really needed any help painting himself as a bit of paranoiac nut. Job but i'm just trying to ride this line here guys. Let's keep let's keep it going. Being paranoid does not inherently complete to being delusional. Absolutely not. and you're right. There is there are signs that something was going on. I mean he he may well have had it coming. But i i have no doubt that that he had some very powerful enemies. Oh yeah of course and and He his run would have continued longer most likely if it were not for an accident on the part of vice vice magazine but it's media be. They've done some really great work. You know But in this case they they were following along with him. They were with him while he was on the run or for part of his journey and they made a misstep a an easy misstep to make an and in all likelihood an honest mistake. They weren't trying to get them. Busted is what we're saying. They uploaded a photo to their website that contained location data and this revealed that by this point mcafee had crossed international borders and he was in guatemala illegally. Remember and this at this point. Multiple governments are paying attention. They want to find him. And you know one thing that was odd to me about. This is mcafee. Doesn't seem really mad at the people involved. He's a very paranoid do but he also believes it's just an honest mistake. Which seems counterintuitive to what we know about him right yeah. Surprisingly e- even handed for him. This stood out to me like we immediately. Add to go on the run again because we're in guatemala illegally at this point but it was no one's real fault it was just the fault of the moment i liked that language. It's good the fault of the moment. He was caught in december in guatemala. And he he actually faked to separate heart attacks. Which knowing we know about his predilection for you know certain extracurricular substances tracks in order to avoid deportation to belize and in many ways i mean and the only way that really matters. I guess it worked because he was instead deported to miami. And what do you do after you've been arrested multiple times and she wanted fugitives. You know what you do that you run for president. That's exactly what you do. He was like he was like the pro-jo exotic. You know what. I mean like really wild. Yeah i don't know his opinion on tigers news wild so weird we're just a friendly reminder sirloin conspiracy realist. We're not at the crazy part yet. This is just. This guy's life is it actually happened and it's already pretty extraordinary. You're absolutely right. it goes to. He goes to miami. he's deported. he's not going back to belize and in two thousand fifteen announces that he will run as a candidate for the cyber-party presidency of the united states of america. Cyber-party as you know is Not the most prominent political organization in the us as later. He switches to the libertarian party. Which makes sense because he himself has spouse these views. Yeah i feel like a kid in middle school. Learning about what cyber is Ula like cyber. Cain was always so funny when light trump for example or any kind of like you know slightly out of touch.

"And turns of his time on earth. And we're seeking to suss out the answer to one burning question. did he. In fact as officials have concluded take his own life and why do so many people question the official narrative dancer this. We're going to have to start by learning a little bit more about the man himself and this is one of those episodes where you know. We've still got the facts. Still got the crazy. Just be very aware folks. The facts themselves are pretty insane in this case. So they'll further ado. Here are the facts. Yeah so let's start with. John mcafee's life i john. David mcafee was born on september. Eighteenth of nineteen forty-five on a united states army base specifically it was the five hundred. Sixty ninth ordinance ammunition company and that was in gloucestershire england. His father was don mcafee. An american stationed on base while he was born in the united kingdom. Mcafee grew up in salem virginia and in one thousand nine hundred sixty. His father tragically took his own. Life Something that may come into play in terms of hereditary factors and mcafee is owned passing Mcafee received his bachelor's degree in math from roanoke college. Seven years later in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and he would ultimately receive an honorary doctor of science degree from that college and he originally at least according to himself he wanted to keep going down that educational route when when in nineteen sixty seven when he got his degree and he was at northeast louisiana state college where he was doing such a thing. He was trying to get a doctorate in mathematics not a an honorary one and actual and he ran into some trouble the next year. One thousand nine hundred sixty eight. He ended up getting expelled because he had a relationship with an undergrad. And it didn't go so great in the education department but they did form a family they got married after after. That whole thing happened and that would be number one out of the three of which we are aware yep and he had numerous amorous relationships right outside of marriage while he was married while he was legally single. This first marriage was short lived. I have when you hear people talking about mcafee now and you hear references to his wife. They're talking about his third wife jess who is alive as we record this so yeah we already see some of these contradictions. In later interviews mcafee goes on to say that he started abusing drugs and alcohol pretty early in life. I don't think he would necessarily use the term abuse. She was a huge proponent of recreational drug use but we see these contradictions. A guy who was academically pretty on point but also Considers himself a bit of cazenove. Bit of a ladies man. I and You know parties in his mind just as hard as he works. Can't it reminds me of almost. Like a william s burroughs figure in that way someone who advocated for the recreational use of drugs and continued to use drugs until the day that he He passed away as well. It probably saw himself as a sort of tony. Stark figure right tech neurology Who was beyond cool. And and as we'll see the cultivation of his public image is something that he spent a great deal of time Thinking through so he but again in arguably the guy is pretty intelligent right now. Also wanna give a shout out. Where pow robert over on behind the bastards. Some time ago they did a two part episode on maxi's life. If you'd like to learn more that was. I believe that was recorded before mcafee passed away. So he's a smart guy. He goes to work for nasa an outfit in new york from nineteen sixty eight to nineteen seventy and he's working on the apollo program who's part of space exploration history. But after that he takes his career to the private sector he worked for univac as a software designer then he moved to xerox as operating systems architect and then he becomes software consultant at a place with the astonishingly creative name computer sciences operation nineteen seventy is a new era. At that time you games like that and also perhaps presciently. He worked for a firm called booz allen hamilton in the early eighties Also while at lockheed in the mid eighties he got hip to to ibm and their first computer virus. This was a program called brain and in one thousand nine hundred six. This awareness of the idea of computer viruses ultimately changed the direction of his career and his life He understood that viruses posed a much larger threat than maybe even realized at the time. Yeah he saw the shadow cast just before we move on. You may recognize that name booz allen hamilton. If you're listening to this. The reason why i stuck in my brain is because there's another person who formerly worked for that company. That person's name is edward snowden and they you know. The company has a very close link with some of the intelligence services within the united states. So that may be a reason why you've heard of them as well. It's a good weapon. It's greek catch matt. Ed shows up in today's episode later as well before we move on. I do want to say one thing. In defense of the virus known as brain first of its kind that people really came out nineteen eighty-six but the story behind. It is fascinating even though it's not really relevant to this episode it was created by these two This pair of pakistani brothers and he didn't really have an ill intentioned. They like almost like someone in a stadium in a sports game. Who tries to start a wave. You know you gotta be brave or tied drunk to try to start away on your own i they. They were trying to do that. They really want to upset. You know financial apple or anything. They literally just thought it was a cool idea and they wanted like someone doing away the stadium to see how far it could travel. How do we know because they put their real names. Information in the code and the virus itself was named after their physical computer shop. Would you say they weren't trying to be like shadowy secret and they were like. Oh hey tell us apart. Cool thing works. And that's when maggie was like. Oh this could be the end of the world and he set upon his mission. This leads us like was saying this. This is a milestone a turning point for him he understands the danger viruses malware could create and so he immediately goes to work making antivirus software with the goal of automatically detecting and automatically removing similar programs by the next year. He's founded mcafee associates inc to sell the software. It is the first of its kind commercially available. And it's weird because he's selling something that fixes a problem. Most people at this point don't understand is a problem. It's also a time. We're not nearly as many crucial systems. Things like vehicles even for example or infrastructure You know maintenance were run by computers. it's something that he really did kind of see the future of and take action and While we will all come to associate mcafee software with sort of inconvenience in the navy not being the most efficient at what it was setting out to do. The fact that he had that idea.
