Been reading news reports about spyware and some Lenovo computer hardware. So I’ve advised some friends to check if their Lenovo Yoga has some issues (superfish adware).
Check out this article: Spyware found installed on Lenovo PCs
To be clear: Lenovo never installed this software on any ThinkPad notebooks, nor any Lenovo desktops or smartphones. This software has never been installed on any enterprise product — servers or storage — and these products are in no way impacted. And, Superfish is no longer being installed on any Lenovo device.
Lesson learned: Monitor the news for any security issues involving the devices that you use.
