Let's see here... As an "ethical hacker group," you don't like being criticized by someone as engaging in illegal 
activities, so you announce on a public site that you are going to attack the company?   Brilliant.

According to xssed.com,  there are two remaining XSS issues:

https://kb.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=";; alert(1); // 
https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=";; alert(1); //


You guys know our disclosed issues are very simple and can easily be found through viewing HTML/JS source codes and 
simple Google Hacking (http://www.google.com/search?q=%22%3C%25+Dim++site%3Adownload.mcafee.com).

However,  it was criticized as 'illegal break-in' by Cenzic's CMO, http://www.cenzic.com/company/management/khera/,  
according to Network World News editor - Ellen Messmer.  Thus, the next target is Cenzic web site. Let's see how strong 
the Kung-Fu of Cenzic HailStorm scanner is.
