He's the original computer genius gone rogue, inventor of one of the most successful (and most hated) pieces of software of all time: McAfee Anti-Virus. At his peak, John McAfee was worth $100 million. But when his neighbor was murdered, McAfee went on the run -- and invited a film crew with him. With access to hundreds of hours of never-before-broadcast footage of McAfee as he's pursued by the authorities, this is the definitive story of a larger-than-life character, a man who ran for President, escaped from prison multiple times, and claimed to have hacked the world.

Would never install his software, or hang out with him, but. The Gringo documentary was awesome.

if he's really alive hopefully he'll send us a sign.

I didn't know the part about the intelligence agencies being interested in his allegedly "hacking the world" and all the spycraft stuff. I was not really aware of him at all, I'll have to watch this soon. It just came out today, apparently.

Oh, it was kinda disappointing. I had hoped to know more about the issues, but I see it is all about his ego. And also the ego of the film makers..why the heck were they interviewed on their own doc? that's weird and egotistical. who cares about them?

I am a few documentaries behind, so I haven't seen this yet. I did see the trailer though, and I can see how McAfee had an air of big-ego around him. I guess having it all filmed can do that to you as well. There was another documentary made about him back in 2016, Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee.

Thanks for the suggestion! I checked and that docu does not appear to be here on Concen, but it is around

... because of their sleazy malware ads and popups.

To spare our members from the slime, I uploaded it here.

Okay, thank you. I use that site quite heavily, but don't get any pop-ups because of my ad-blocker extension...but agree that's annoying if you are not armed.

I use multiple strategies to block malware, but any site that is willing to inflict it on its users is likely also selling user data. I am not claiming they do, but I recommend also clearing all cookies and using an anonymous browser through a VPN when visiting their site. Usually I just use a meta search engine to download a torrent directly.

Not sure what to make of this one, but worth a watch. Only short - https://www.bitchute.com/video/5Swk2l3LFSNv/?list=notifications&randomiz...

call me old fashioned but i draw the line at eating shit fromfresh from the anus.
And bath salts? again WTF??? the guy had plenty money to get decent, stuff like cocaine etc and not fucking bath salts.
Having been in Belize a couple of times for jungle training in the British Army i can tell you it genuinely is a very , very, very , very corrupt place and when i was last there in 1992 Belize city was a glorified shanty town.
neither documentary painted a particularly good picture of him in his "latter years".
It would not surpruse me one bit to find out he was living it up somewhere under an assumed name and dipping into those trust funds.
i wonbder if he thought 2 girls 1 cup was an erotic masterpiece! LOL
