My husband insists that computer viruses are made and released by the same people who sell anti-viral software.
I wouldn't doubt that MacAfee, given its founders behavior, followed that route, especailly with the Michalangelo virus that sprung it to prominence. I would also suspect Kaspersky, simply because it is the Russian way.

Most of the houses have done that sort of thing. They will tell you that the AV virus writer is a myth. It is not. In my collection I have a lot of nasty stuff that is written by people on the inside, both known and unknown.
Eugene was never pushing viruses, but I remember him having at least one former writer.
