Is McAfee.com Insecure?

The YGN Ethical Hacker Group has publicly disclosed that Intel's (NASDAQ:INTC) McAfee security division may have multiple security problems with its website.

"It is important to note that these vulnerabilities do not expose any of McAfee's customer, partner or corporate information. Additionally, we have not seen any malicious exploitation of the vulnerabilities."
