So, quite a shocker in the news a few days ago, turns out Lenovo was installing spyware on their computers so that they could force their ads onto you while you were browsing, if that was bad enough it turns out the software could even by pass secure web browsing such as you would use while banking. Fortunately it doesn’t appear that anyone used the vulnerability to hack anything or so it seems…. at this point in time. Lenovo put this software on 43 models of laptops that were shipped world wide from Oct 2014 to Dec 2014. There is a tool at the Lenovo website to remove the software.
In good news the FCC has put a stop to slow laning by the big ISP (who also provide cable and satellite services) therefore preventing them from slowing down internet traffic from sites in the U.S that offer movies and therefore allowing continued competition against their cable and satellite services.
