Go fish for Superfish installations in Lenovo laptops&ultras

If you got a Lenovo laptop or ultra in 2014, you should test for "Superfish," which creates a huge security hole. Even "https" webpages are not safe. **Safety notice: Kim Komando gave this link just below and I have clicked on it and ran the test there OK**

It said that my laptop probably does not have Superfish.


For more details visit Kim Komando's webpages:

Good luck.

If you wish to give out advice, don't post it from Kim Komandos site. See my post in your hacking thread for more. Please use good sources.

Not all of them. Only certain models. We use Lenovo at work, and none of the models we use have it.

I removed TS's links.

Here are some more reliable ones:

Cnet story: http://www.cnet.com/news/superfish-torments-lenovo-owners-with-more-than-adware/

Lenovos removal tool: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/superfish_uninstall

Superfish checker tool: https://lastpass.com/superfish/

I hate to say this, but please be careful clicking on ANY tech link that Truthseeker provides. He does not do due diligence in checking his sources and in cases like security, bad judgment could cause more problems than you might already have if you are not careful.

I've not any visible problem that could be caused by my clicking on the link I gave to the website that tests your computer for Superfish.

I don't think I will post stuff here any more relating to security, because of what Sparko did and may do. Be extra vigilant.
