Lenovo Laptops with Adware Pre-installed

China’s Lenovo Group Ltd is in an awkward situation. It recently came out that Superfish, a piece of software that Lenovo had been pre-installing on consumer laptops, is malicious adware.

Superfish had been reported on Laptops as early as last June. However it wasn’t until Thursday, February 19th, that U.S.-based security research firm Errata Security declared Superfish malicious and dangerous to users. It is reported that the adware hijacks and opens encrypted connections, allowing hackers to eavesdrop.

This should be a warning to you – Even large, trusted companies can create dangerous situations regarding your personal information. Keep your computer clean and safe, and have it checked by professionals regularly!

WordPress Security Flaw Exploited

As we all know, WordPress provides people a cheap and easy route to getting a website. However, you get what you pay for with these things, and this is a classic example of that.

Zero-Day Viruses infected users through Insecure WordPress Plugin

One of WordPress’s most popular plugins, “FancyBox” had gone un-updated for nearly two years, leaving it open for attackers to inject malicious scripts into websites using the plugin. This redirected victims to “203koko” websites, infecting their computers.

This was discovered on Wednesday, February 4th. The next day, Thursday, the plugin was updated to secure it again.

However this should be a good warning to you. With a CMS like wordpress and the variety of third party plugins, you never really know if what you’re getting is secure. Going through a professional web design firm that uses its own code and CMS will generally ensure that you’re getting constantly updated and safe content.

Don’t cheap out on your website! Play it safe.
