Lenovo's Superfish security snafu blows up in its face


After 6 months

Lenovo used shady 'rootkit' tactic to quietly reinstall unwanted software

CAUGHT: Lenovo crams unremovable crapware into Windows laptops – by hiding it in the BIOS




If someone is making same mistake again and again... this should not be called a mistake.
Hardware-level backdoors are undetectable. It's sad... hardware has become major concerns for security.

Well there is one way to avoid it, folks should just not buy their products. You get what you pay for. :rolleyes:

 

Just my opinion.

I have a Lenovo G50-70 Laptop no problems here as my model is not affected by bios problem,I always install Retail copy's of windows so superfish does not effect Me. is my Laptop talking to lenovo? NO as no abnormal communication to lenovo by my laptop as happening as far as i can tell.

 

should i upgrade to smart security from nod 32 if i have a router (Netgear D6200) that has SPI and NAT capability and windows firewall on both my pc's enough protection?   

 

I am running Windows 10 Pro 64Bit on both my laptops

Other laptop is a dell inspiron 15R

No.

Your router (Netgear D6200) that has SPI and NAT capability and windows firewall are good enough.

just my 2 cents
