Lenovo is getting more than it’s share of attention these days.
Microsoft has released an update to it’s free Windows Defender anti-malware software that classifies Lenovo’s Superfish as the malicious software that it is, removes the certificate from the Windows certificate store (which is the hard part, so yeah, Microsoft – and I don’t say that very often) and gives you instructions for removing the Superfish software.
Lenovo is now in hyper damage control mode and likely will be for a while.
There are plenty of other brands out that – perhaps choosing a brand that is not controlled by the Chinese government/military might be a wise move anyway. I know that Lenovo claims that they are not controlled by the government, but what would you expect them to say?
