Lenovo attacked by Lizard Squad

26 February 2015

Lenovo Lenovo annoyed everyone when it turned out that they'd put Superfish in a load of their laptops. The company said that it was supposed to enhance the user's experience, but any fool could've told them that this was never going to be the case.

No-one wants a program that offers you shopping tips, as most people already know what they're shopping for, or indeed, are hit with enough adverts while online, that there's buyers fatigue while on the computer.

As such, Lenovo have been hit with a cyber-attack and, again, those cute Lizard Squad guys were behind it, turning their attention away from games consoles long enough to cause the laptop vendor some grief.

"One effect of this attack was to redirect traffic from the Lenovo website," Lenovo said in a statement. "We are also actively investigating other aspects. We are responding and have already restored certain functionality to our public-facing website."

The company is also "actively reviewing" their network security and will be taking steps "to protect the integrity of our users' information and experience". They're bloody obsessed with 'user experience' aren't they?

If you missed the news, Lenovo are no longer dealing with Superfish software after a huge amount of complaints.
