  1. The information security news today is all about Lenovo’s default installation of a piece of adware called “Superfish” on a number of laptops shipped before February 2015. The Superfish system is essentially a tiny TLS/SSL “man in the middle” proxy that attacks secure connections by making them insecure — so that the proxy can insert ads in order to, oh, I don’t know, let’s just let Lenovo tell it: “To be clear, Superfish comes with Lenovo consumer products only and is a technology that helps users find and discover products visually,” the representative continued. “The technology instantly an
  2. Hackers have targeted Lenovo with a website defacement attack believed to be intended to ‘punish' the firm for its use of the Superfish adware. The attack occurred on Wednesday and forced Lenovo.com to display a slideshow of images while playing Breaking Free from High School Musical. A Lenovo spokesperson told V3 that the firm is taking action to improve the site's security and "investigating other aspects of the attack". "Unfortunately, Lenovo has been the victim of a cyber attack. One effect of this was to redirect traffic from the Lenovo website. We are also actively investigating other as
  3. Expertii in securitate de la G Data SecurityLabs au analizat adware-ul Superfish. In acest proces, analistii au intalnit o componenta de tehnologie in program, numita SSL Digestor. Acesta foloseste un certificat root care este slab securizat ?i are drepturi extinse pe calculator. SSL Digestor intercepteaza conexiuni HTTPS sigure si le poate descifra. In acest fel, conexiunile care sunt de fapt securizate ar putea fi interceptate si atacate. Acest lucru inseamna ca infractorii cibernetici ar putea folosi un atac man-in-the-middle pentru a spiona sau manipula fluxul de date dintre doi parteneri
  4. Lenovo has teamed up with Microsoft and McAfee to remove the Superfish adware from its machines, following concerns about security. Lenovo announced the partnerships in a public statement, promising that the tools will let users automatically block and remove the insecure, self-signing certificates used by Superfish. "We are working with McAfee and Microsoft to have the Superfish software and certificate quarantined or removed using their industry-leading tools and technologies," the firm said. "These actions have already started and will automatically fix the vulnerability even for users who
  5. There is an adware called Privdog that gets shipped with software from Comodo. It totally breaks HTTPS security. In case you haven't heard it the past days an Adware called Superfish made headlines. It was preinstalled on Lenovo laptops and it is bad: It totally breaks the security of HTTPS connections. The story became bigger when it became clear that a lot of other software packages were using the same technology Komodia with the same security risk. What Superfish and other tools do is that it intercepts encrypted HTTPS traffic to insert Advertising on webpages. It does so by breaking th
  6. Computer maker Lenovo has been forced to remove hidden adware that it was shipping on its laptops and PCs after users expressed anger. The adware - dubbed Superfish - was potentially compromising their security, said experts. The hidden software was also injecting adverts on to browsers using techniques more akin to malware, they added. Lenovo faces questions about why and for how long it was pre-installed on machines - and what data was collected. The company told the BBC in a statement: "Lenovo removed Superfish from the preloads of new consumer systems in January 2015. At the same time Supe
  7. A pretty shocking thing came to light this evening – Lenovo is installing adware that uses a “man-in-the-middle” attack to break secure connections on affected laptops in order to access sensitive data and inject advertising. As if that wasn’t bad enough they installed a weak certificate into the system in a way that means affected users cannot trust any secure connections they make – TO ANY SITE. We trust our hardware manufacturers to build products that are secure. In this current climate of rising cybercrime, if you cant trust your hardware manufacturer you are in a very difficult position.
