Here's an example how good McAfee is. One of my users on Wednesday received a CitiBank
McAfee flagged it is as a "Exploit-BankFrd.eml" (not exact text) in the user's Outlook XP
InBox.. The even was logged, I got an email and I got a NetBIOS Pop-Up. Neither the Trend
Border Gateway nor NAV on Exchange Server caught it ;-)
