McAfee: I know who’s helping the FBI hack Apple – CNBC

To be sure, McAfee is renowned as much for his cybersecurity knowledge as for his exploits, including facetious comments to the press on his run-ins with the law in Belize, driving under the influence in rural Tennessee, provocative online videos and, most recently, a run for the U.S. presidency.

McAfee was critical of the efforts of the U.S. and its allies for tracking terrorist communications. He said the needed technology already exists.

McAfee described a specific device that intercepts phone calls, tracks keystrokes before they are encrypted and takes screen captures. Such a device would make monitoring terrorists “trivial,” he said.

“We don’t have a coherent strategy,” McAfee said. “We’re looking for terrorists here in America. By the time that happens it’s way too late.”
