Oops! McAfee discloses 1k customer e-mails


Patrick Gray


McAfee Australia leaked 971 customer e-mail addresses in a botched e-mail marketing campaign last week.

The addresses of the recipients were placed in the visible TO field instead of the BCC field.

It's an all-too-common mistake, made especially embarrassing for McAfee because it's not the first time in recent memory something like this has happened.
