Lenovo hit with lawsuit. Superfish adware and security are issues

Feb 23, 2015 11:48:13 AM

From Mashable: Lenovo and Superfish were slapped with a proposed class-action lawsuit, filed late last week in federal court, according to reports.

Plaintiff Jessica Bennett says she noticed "spam advertisements involving scantily clad women" on her Yoga 2 laptop. She assumed her computer had contracted some form of spyware, but eventually found out it was the adware Superfish, which was preinstalled on her machine, she claims. The lawsuit calls out Lenovo for "fraudulent" business practices and compromising user security and privacy for financial gain.
