I work in the financial industry, and this issue caused significant disruption to trading floors throughout Wall Street.  Traders are generally quite upset with McAfee right now, so it makes sense that their stock is dropping :)

1 Haven't used McAfee since back in the '80s when they were practically giving it away.  It was crap then and it's crap now.
