Well, I saw on one of the news feeds earlier tonight that Lenovo computers were being shipped with some type of very serious malware on them that essentially made everything that was done on the computer available over the internet.

And, there was also something about a security certificate already installed that made other security certificates useless — you could connect to any site securely, even if it’s certificate wasn’t legitimate.

Apparently, for a personal computer, all your emails, banking information, and everything else could be compromised — for computers used in the corporate world, it opened doors into everything on the companies computer.

IIRC, the malware had something like Silverfish, or Silvertail, or something along that line. Sorry, I don’t remember just where I read it now.
