Until Superfish fix, Lenovo devices can’t be trusted for secure work

Millions of Lenovo owners are being warned to not use their desktops and laptops for “any kind of secure transaction,” amid concerns that the company installed adware on their machines.

Lenovo-branded devices sold between September 2014 and January 2015 through consumer online and retail stores, like Best Buy and, are likely affected by the Superfish adware, which hijacks secure internet traffic.

Users who think they might be affected by the Superfish vulnerability can check their desktops and laptops by visiting a recommended checking tool. If this shows that you are infected it provides instructions for how to remove this infection.
