Well it’s finally time to say Goodbye to Hacker Safe, or McAfee Secure for that matter. Things just aren’t the same anymore. I magically lost my affiliate account one day (and my emails regarding it nowhere to be seen), and the benefit of the branded “HackerSafe” icon is no longer there as they’ve changed the icons to “McAfee Secure”.
So I’m still the same guy, very serious about security, but just won’t be using this as one of the tools in my toolbox. There are other vulnerability scanners out there.. And besides, it’s been said that people showing the badge are more likely to be targetted by hackers because they want to prove a point. Oh well!
