McAfee software for Ubuntu (deb) is creating files with incorrect usernames

The current version of the McAfee software for Ubuntu (deb) is creating files with incorrect usernames.  When installing this software using sudo, the pre and post scripts for the package install are being chowned to uid 500.  the uid 500 is not a valid user, and therefore trips on a vulnerability scan.  Please correct the "mfert" and "mfecma" deb packages to correctly chown these to either root (0) or create a new user for these scripts to be owned by.
