Superfish agrees to pay $1 million to settle a class-action privacy lawsuit



The class action lawsuit was brought on behalf of consumers who purchased Lenovo notebooks in late 2014 and early 2015 and alleges that Lenovo bundled Superfish’s “VisualDiscovery” ad-serving software with notebooks which contained security flaws.

Superfish is a program that inserts ads into a variety of Web pages including secure HTTPS pages. To do so, Superfish tinkers with Windows’ cryptographic security, according to numerous reports. But breaking encryption also paves the way for hackers to intercept sensitive data, including passwords and online banking credentials.

I have been hacked and harassed for the last 3 years to the point I am about to commit suicide. They have gotten me fired from my last 3 jobs, corrupted and destroyed 56 (fifty six) laptops, 22 Tablets, 21 Smart Phones, 13 Apple devices, 2 Android Note Books, and 4 Chromebooks. They have destroyed family relationships, friends, co workers and I am now broke and one day from being homeless. That is why I am probably going to revert to suicide unless, The Good Lord steps in somehow. I have documentation and videos of the harassment. A huge amount that I have accumulated over the last three years of this harassment.
