Network Associates denies sale rumors

The statement came after a trade magazine published an article quoting unnamed Wall Street sources and partners as saying that the company was on the block and considering a deal with Microsoft.

Network Associates normally stays mum on such speculation, Keavney said, but the level of interest in this rumor required a response.
