Santa Clara-based McAfee touts its security software. But its marketing department was anything but impregnable, based on a complaint Santa Clara County prosecutors filed Thursday.

For the second time, a former employee in McAfee's marketing department has been charged with stealing from the big anti-virus software and computer security company — this time, about $3.8 million.

Former product marketing manager Susan Despinic, 35, of Los Gatos is accused of awarding contracts to a firm she and her husband owned, and to a shell company they set up. She and her husband, Aurawm Almaneih, each face one count of felony theft and one excessive-taking enhancement on suspicion of stealing more than $2.5 million. Deputy District Attorney Dale B. Lohman said the companies involved in the reported fraud provided such services as translations, competitive analysis and promotions.

Prosecutors suspect the couple bought a house in Los Gatos with some of the loot, according to Lohman, who alleges the crimes took place from May 2005 through August 2007. If convicted, they each face up to seven years in state prison.

Another former employee, Ayshah Maiorano, was arrested last year on similar charges. That case is still pending. Maiorano could not be reached for comment.

A spokeswoman for McAfee said the company has taken major steps to improve security since the thefts from its satellite office in Sunnyvale.

"We have implemented permanent control improvements, including moving senior procurement staff to Santa Clara and clarification of procedures and responsibilities," McAfee spokeswoman Tracy Ross wrote in an e-mail. "When all this initially came to light we reduced the threshold for legal review of procurement activities while the new procedures and controls were put in place."

Despinic has been released on $1 million bail and Almaneih on $500,000 bail, Lohman said. Neither could be reached for comment. Their next court date is set for Nov. 14.
