Security measures announced

Announcement

Lenovo announces future security measures after Superfish complaints.

Now, we are in the midst of developing a concrete plan to address software vulnerabilities and security with defined actions that we will share by the end of the week. What I can say about this today is that we are exploring a wide range of options that include: creating a cleaner PC image (the operating system and software that is on your device right out of the box); working directly with users, privacy/security experts and others to create the right preload strategy quickly; and soliciting and assessing the opinions of even our harshest critics in evaluating our products going-forward.

Superfish fix

Lenovo releases a tool to remove Superfish adware.

We are working with McAfee and Microsoft to have the Superfish software and certificate quarantined or removed using their industry-leading tools and technologies. These actions have already started and will automatically fix the vulnerability even for users who are not currently aware of the problem.
