    The auditor for security software firm McAfee may be thinking of buying some security software itself, after one of its employees left an unencrypted CD containing sensitive information on thousands of McAfee employees in the back of an airline seat last December.

    Deloitte & Touche's backup CD contained names,
    Social Security numbers, and information on stock holdings held by over 9000 of McAfee's current and former employees, McAfee spokesperson Siobhan MacDermott confirmed today.

    The information concerned McAfee's U.S. and Canadian employees hired prior to 2005--about 6000 former employees and 3290 current staffers--MacDermott said. The CD was left on the airplane on December 15, she said.

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
