I just read that the computer company Lenovo has been purposefully installing malware on their computers. It is called “SuperFish” and They don’t view it as malware, but as a “customer experience enhancer”. I’ve seen these computers popping up in local government, and that raises the concern that sensitive information could be intercepted, especially since Lenovo is produced in communist China.
Here is a link to more info and how to remove this malware:
