Company McAfee Agent Appeared on Personal Computer

Markus Hector


I'm running Linux 9 Stable Stretch with Desktop Environment Plasma. I logged into work (from home) via Citrix Receiver earlier to check the status of a process.


I closed the desktop terminal on my personal computer but I think I might of forgotten to log off in my browser before I closed it. A few hours later, I noticed McAfee on my taskbar on my personal computer. I clicked on About and copy pasted the text, it's displayed below between the ***. I masked what I think might be personal information in bold.

I know my personal computer is kept private from a citrix receiver connection from work but this has my scratching my head. How did this get on my personal computer? (I can't find any traces of it after rebooting)

Yip as you said, appears the Citrix session is still active and its showing the McAfee agent from the Citrix server you have connected to. A lot of the icons in the systray can be hidden so would look at doing that, then it shouldn't show on your local PC when you connect to the virtual desktop.
