Lenovo preloaded with Superfish (Adware)

Lenovo found itself in a bit of hot water when some customers started noticing weird sponsored links in the search results on their brand-new PCs. The culprit it turns out was a little piece of adware called Superfish the company was shipping on laptops. The company listened to customer complaints and turned off the server-side portion of the app in January. It also stopped preinstalling Superfish on new machines around the same time. While Lenovo said originally that it had "temporarily removed" the software from new machines while its developers worked on an update to address concerns, it now says that it will not preload the software ever again.
