Bad Move Lenovo With Superfish Software

superfish-220x169So Just found out about his earlier today. I personally owned a few Lenovo computers in the past and found myself getting rid of them. Selling to someone else or returning them to the store. They aren’t vary good and cheaply made. But I guess you get what you pay for tho. But after reading about the Superfish Software and what it does, this explains so much now on what was wrong with the computers. Yet another reason to never buy from this company again. I have added a link to download the tools to remove said Superfish program (http://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkvantage_en/metroapps/SuperFishRemovalTool/1.0.2.0/Lenovo.SuperFishRemovalTool.exe). If you wish to check it out before downloading I highly recommend it. Can never be to safe!

Superfish is a piece of software that Lenovo has admitted to pre-installing on many of its laptops to “enhance the shopping experience” of its users. However, the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team calls Superfish a “man-in-the-middle attack” because of how it “intercepts users’ web traffic to provide targeted advertisements.” Superfish snoops in on your web browsing and secretly slips ads into webpages. But the really dangerous part is that it’s pre-installed with root certificate authority, which allows it to impersonate any server’s security certificate.

If this certificate is compromised by hackers, you could be tricked into logging in to a fake website and giving hackers your password. Because of Superfish, any of your accounts—including encrypted bank accounts—could be easily compromised. Superfish has been pre-installed by Lenovo. Therefore, restoring your computer to factory condition from either a backup partition or a backup DVD will not solve the problem if Superfish is also part of your backup. Superfish would only be reinstalled, too. So if you ever use a backup to restore your system, you may need to again remove Superfish and its root security certificate from your system.

To remove the Superfish program and its certificate from your computer, use this free tool from Lenovo: (Link)

According to Lenovo, Superfish may have been pre-installed on the following models: (Source: Lenovo)

Fun Doctor Who Fact

Did you know that In Doctor Who, the Doctor’s bow tie is red the episode
takes place In the future, and blue if it is in the past. lt’s true for the tenth
Doctor too. His suit was blue if they went forward in time and the brown if
they went back in time.

6 MORE Licensed Properties That Need LEGO Love

Jason Bucky Roberts:

Couldn’t agree more!!

Originally posted on Henchman-4-Hire:

I may never get over the fact that The LEGO Movie was snubbed at the Oscars this past weekend. I’m thinking of taking it personally. Maybe organize some kind of grassroots petition? Whatever I end up doing (probably nothing), I will always remain a lifelong LEGO fan. And to honor the best movie of 2014 — since the Academy wouldn’t — I’ve decided to do a sequel List of Six to one from a few years ago.

What new franchises need to be made into LEGO?

Consider this at the top of every birthday or Christmas list I’ll ever have going forward

Walk down the LEGO aisle at the toy store these days and you’ll see Avengers, Ninja Turtles, Jurassic World, Harry Potter and more. We didn’t have branded LEGOs when I was a kid, but I would have given anything to have a real, fully licensed Ninja Turtles van…
