Followers of on-the-run cybersecurity baron John McAfee will be sorry to hear that he won't be updating his blog for the next few days. The billionaire inventor of McAfee antivirus software told friend Chad Essley this morning that "something had happened" and that he needed to move to another location.

Despite being the target of Central America's most-publicised manhunt, McAfee has had time to post nine blogs in the past three days. He has also detailed his various disguises, the latest of which involved smearing himself with shoe polish and pretending to be a Guatemalan trinket peddler, complete with a faked limp and a "shaved" tampon up his right nostril. McAfee is still being hunted by the police in Belize who want to question him about the murder of his neighbour, Gregory Faull: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-12/mcafee-founder-is-suspect-in-murder-of-american-ex-pat-in-belize.html

McAfee blogged on Tuesday about the elaborate aural surveillance system he set up in the months before the murder - attaching recorders to his employees, friends and even dogs and posting the sound file of a conversation in Creole where he alleges a former local official tries to persuade his employee to kill him.

On Monday McAfee posted a meditative blog post about the place of bar girls in Belizean society, based on the story of Timesha, a former bar girl in the Belizean town of Orange Walk, who met McAfee two years ago in a "lover's bar". The antivirus millionaire says he bought her a house and she went back to school.

The McAfee's blog, The Hinterland: http://www.whoismcafee.com , is managed by McAfee's friend, Portland film-maker Chad Essley, and is believed to be genuine.

Posting late on Monday night on his blog McAfee revealed that after disguising himself as a drunk German tourist and a burrito seller over the weekend, he has tweaked his disguise again and is posing as a poor Guatemalan peddler selling carved wooden dolphins. He said the shaved tampon was intended to make his nose look deformed. He claims he almost sold a dolphin to an Associated Press reporter, but the journalist was pulled away on a phone call.

Watch this space.

John McAfee reportedly suffers heart attack while in jail


The saga of the McAfee antivirus company founder John McAfee continued on its weird Quentin Tarantino movie-like script today. Just hours after he was arrested in Guatemala, McAfee may have suffered a heart attack while he was in jail.

ABCNews.com reports that McAfee was complaining of chest pains while in the Guatemala City detention center and then later he was reportedly seen down on the floor and "nonresponsive": http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/john-mcafee-suffers-heart-attack-guatemala-detention-center/story?id=17890926#.UMEUb3ewV8E
He was taken out of the jail to be transported to a hospital but awoke once again as nurses started removing his clothes. McAfee's offical blog states, "We have no news on his status at this time".

McAfee could be deported to Belize sometime later today, according to the report. Officials of that country's government want to question him as part of their investigation of American businessman Gregory Faull's murder in mid-November. McAfee says he had nothing to do with Faull's death and has maintained that the government of Belize are trying to frame him for the murder.

McAfee left Belize earlier this week and even employed a decoy who was caught at the Mexico border. Instead, McAfee went to Guatemala where he apparently thought he would be safe from arrest. Instead, he was detained by that country's immigration police.

Update: Reuters reports that, according to his lawyer, McAfee did not in fact suffer from a heart attack, adding, "He was suffering from stress, hypertension and tachycardia": http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/06/belize-mcafee-stress-idUSL1E8N6IJ920121206
