Bungled McAfee updates are shutting down the XP machines globally

It has been examined from all over the words that a McAfee destructive and faulty update for Windows XP has caused computers to shutdown worldwide. According to the grapevine situation, that update, which is named as 5958 initially, deletes the svchost.exe file, and then it activates as a false positive in McAfee itself, setting off an array of abandoned restarts of the system and losing the networking functionality.

Now, this is wild! The Twitter is mainly going nuts and the McAfee’s support website is appears to be down. There is a number if fixes, that are floating around, however, it may be extremely late. The number may reach millions, before that affective action is required !
