Short Take: McAfee says no copied code used

Responding to Symantec's accusations that it used "significant" copied code in its VirusScan product line, McAfee reported that an investigation reveals the software does not use the code in question. The nonfunctional code is less than 100 lines in length, representing less than one one-hundredth of one percent (.01 percent) of the VirusScan code, and the McAfee developer responsible for developing the code found the code fragment on the Web, in the public domain, McAfee said.
