    Default Check if your Lenovo computer has Superfish malware installed

    Visit this website to check if your Lenovo or any other computer for that matter, has Superfish malware installed.

    If you see an image with "YES" written on it, you have a problem. Do the test with all browsers installed.If you get YES but you are not on a Lenovo and you didn't see any warning then probably the browser you are using is not checking certificates. That's BAD. Anyone can intercept the connections you make from that browser.
    Lenovo has been selling computers with pre-installed malware, so if you bought one recently, you want to watch out!

    Go here or visit the LastPass site to check.

    Can you be Super-Phished? If you can access this site without any warnings, then YES, you are vulnerable!

    Update: This post will show you how to uninstall and remove Superfish malware completely. Lenovo has also published a list of devices that have been affected by it here.

    Lenovo apologizes and offers steps to fully remove this malware :
    "We're sorry. We messed up. We're owning it. And we're making sure it never happens again. Fully uninstall Superfish: Superfish Uninstall Instructions - Lenovo Support (US)
