    His neighbor should have scanned more frequently for potential threats I guess.

    McAfee said this week on his blog that he has donned a disguise and watched as police searched his house and reporters gathered.

    He says he has blackened his face and teeth, wears a sarape and has posed as a vendor of wood carvings.

    Would it be ironic if McAfee escaped to the U.S. to escape extradition to Belize?

    GUATEMALA CITY, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Guatemalan police arrested U.S. software guru John McAfee on Wednesday for illegally entering the country and said it would expel him to neighboring Belize, which he fled after being sought for questioning over his neighbor's murder...

    On Tuesday, McAfee said he would seek political asylum in Guatemala, which has been embroiled in a long-running territorial dispute with Belize. There is no extradition treaty between the two countries, and there is no international arrest warrant out for McAfee.

    Furthers my belief that companies like McAfee intentionally create computer viruses to drum up business.
