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.
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.
