Update 3: It appears Mr McAfee is recuperating well from his near-death poisoning experience...
Update 2: That did not take long. McAfee now claims to know the identity of the motorcyclist and "I want him" explaining that he is a "wanted sex trafficker."
OK. The guy's name is John D. Nichols, lives in Burbank at 1687 Oakway Lane. The man is a wanted sex trafficker. And I want him. I nicknamed him Alexander, after a similar dude I once met.— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) June 24, 2018

John McAfee's "enemies" recently tried to poison him, the cybersecurity pioneer claims. However, John McAfee isn't as easy to kill as his myriad "enemies" had hoped. To help drive this point home, the creator of the eponymous computer security software tweeted an alarming picture of himself lying in a hospital bed with an oxygen tube affixed to his mouth.
His tweet came accompanied with a warning to the unnamed parties who allegedly carried out the attack: "You will soon understand the true meaning of wrath."
And for those who did this - You will soon understand the true meaning of wrath. I know exactly who you are. Youh had better be gone. pic.twitter.com/URgz5BtMLF— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) June 22, 2018
I know exactly who you are." So if you or somebody you know was behind this latest alleged attempt on McAfee's life (he has reportedly been the subject of 11 attempts on his life, along with a "conspiracy" by Belize authorities that he was involved in the death of a neighbor while living in the tropical South American state) be wary: McAfee is coming for you.
This isn't the first time McAfee has been in the news this week: the tech entrepreneur tweeted earlier this week that he would no longer be promoting ICOs due to a warning from the SEC, which has lately been cracking down on celebrity endorsements of the often dubious ICOs. But according to RT, McAfee has been promoting Docademic, which is focused on "reshaping the medical world." He credited the company with urging him to seek medical assistance after his latest poisoning. It appears he made a quick recovery, as he followed up news of his poisoning with a tweet announcing his new crypto wallet.

Today I am announcing my ultra secure wallet, built by Bitfi. It will forever change the landscape of crypto storage. Would have told you earlier, but, if you read my prior tweets, I was unconscious. Anyway, you must check it out.https://t.co/gD0a3S0JKb
The "doctors said no" when McAfee asked to leave the hospital. But he checked himself out anyway, it appears.
I'm leaving the hospital today. Doctors said no. Watch me. pic.twitter.com/fyhMrIryJk— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) June 23, 2018
Of course, after spending so much time promoting obviously scammy ICOs, we imagine there's a large pool of people who've bought into these scams who probably don't have the warmest feelings toward McAfee. And let's not forget his promise to "eat his dick" on national television if bitcoin doesn't hit $500,000 by the end of 2020.
