McAfee SaaS Endpoint Protection Enables Spam Sending From Hijacked PCs [news.cnet.com]
McAfee is looking into a problem with a service in its SaaS Endpoint Protection software that appears to be allowing computers to serve as open proxies for sending spam, the company told CNET today.

"We are aware of the issue and have both threat analytics and development teams diligently analyzing the problem and possible solutions," the company said in a statement. "We will have more information on the issue shortly."

A McAfee public relations representative said "this only affects SaaS, and a patch is forthcoming as soon as it clears testing," which is expected this week.
