I have no beef with McAfee just saw this on MSNBC.

 Personally I am very satisfied with NIS 2010..although conceivably it
could happen to any AV vendor..but hey wait..don't they do a simple
test run first to validate an update they send all over the world?

 The article speculates that hundreds of thousands of computers were
put in a endless reboot cycle from this bad update.

If you read the article you so willingly posted you would have put the pieces
together.

Mr. Lipman I have to admit to you sir..I just am not as thorough as
you must certainly be. I apologize for that inadequacy. But I do have
one simple query to submit..if you would be so gracious as to
entertain same.  

What year did you get your degree, badge and gun from the Usenet
Police Academy?

Again I am so very sorry for intruding in to your newsgroup with such
an untimely and obviously inappropriate message..let me be totally
candid about my feelings on this grievous issue you have admonished me
for...

As the importance of timely updates increases (narrowing the zero-day
window), the risk of FP havoc increases (Q what?).
