Lenovo Superfish

Hey guys!

You may have heard of the discovery of the use of Superfish, a program that comes with Lenovo laptops. The role of this software has recently been discovered, it being to replace adverts on websites with Lenovo's ones, therefore Lenovo getting paid for these ads, instead of the owner of the website receiving the money. This is a real shame, as Lenovo laptops are actually excellent hardware - wise, but this makes a big difference. Apparently, this was the only way Lenovo were making profit, as the demand of people nowadays is to have the price so low - they couldn't make any money out of the actual hardware, so this was the only way they could make any money. It is unlikely that anyone will buy many more Lenovo laptops - this will be not only a lesson to Lenovo but the whole computer hardware industry, forcing them to see the effects of having this kind of software shipped with the computer.
