Lenovo hit with lawsuit over Superfish adware fiasco


That didn’t take long.

Lenovo and Superfish were slapped with a proposed class-action lawsuit, filed late last week in federal court, according to reports

Plaintiff Jessica Bennett says she noticed “spam advertisements involving scantily clad women” on her Yoga 2 laptop. She assumed her computer had contracted some form of spyware, but eventually found out it was the adware Superfish, which was preinstalled on her machine, she claims. The lawsuit calls out Lenovo for “fraudulent” business practices and compromising user security and privacy for financial gain.
