Most people are unaware that Exif data exists on every photograph they take, and that this data could potentially reveal their location if the image is posted to the internet.

Back in December 2012, John McAfee gripped the world with a sudden return to fame. The reclusive technology entrepreneur had lived in the jungles of Belize with a coterie of young women for years, developing new antibiotic drugs.

His new life was far removed from the days when he founded McAfee Anti-Virus software after reading a newspaper article about how computer viruses work.

But after his neighbour was found to have been shot dead, John McAfee fled. Fearing persecution in Belize, he disguised his identity and crossed the border into Guatemala. Reporters from Vice magazine accompanied McAfee on his journey.

A teaser for an exclusive interview with McAfee was posted, titled: “We Are With John McAfee Right Now, Suckers”. A photograph of McAfee with Vice editor-in-chief Rocco Castoro was featured at the top of the interview. It was this photograph that caused John McAfee to be arrested and subsequently deported to the US.
The original photograph with its Exif data still attached.
