Lenovo compromises SSL.

As if governance surveillance wasn’t in the news enough these days, hardware vendors are more or less trusted. Hardware with Windows OEM versions are long known for coming with adware pre-installed. Lenovo comes into the limelight for having installed Adware, that comes with a certificate to allow “Man in the middle” attacks, intercept secure connections and insert adware into trusted brand sites. Having software from a company named Superfish installed is a nightmare for any consumer. That adware removes any trust in online content and Lenovo as a vendor.
