John McAfee proposes anti-surveillance 'D-Central' router to beat the NSA

John E Dunn | Oct. 3, 2013
Antivirus pioneer and onetime fugitive from the Belize police John McAfee has floated plans to beat NSA surveillance by launching a new type of private peer-to-peer networking device called D-Central.

Might it be used for nefarious purposes, McAfee was asked. "Of course it can be used for nefarious purposes just like the telephone can be used for nefarious purposes," he shot back.

McAfee could be the high-profile figure to get an interesting idea of the ground but he still has a lot of distractions vying for his attention. The entrepreneur escaped a Belize police raid last November after one of his neighbours was murdered, since his life and the sometimes bizarre events spinning around it have seemed as clear as mud.
