Superfish, the adware that Lenovo was found to be installing on consumer PCs, has the potential to wreak havoc on your computer. While it can simply plaster webpages with unwanted ads, it’s also capable of spying on encrypted connections.
So, what can you do to ensure you don’t get caught out by it? Well, as we previously reported, Microsoft has updated its definitions in Windows Defender to remove it, and Lenovo itself has released a tool that rids people’s machines of it too. However, both of these involve a process for which you might not have the time. So how about a quick and easy tool on the web that detects if you have it?
Well, that’s exactly what we have here. This page, “built in a frenzy by Filippo Valsorda“, immediately checks if you’ve got the offending piece of software on your machine. So, visit it now and in no time at all, you’ll know whether Superfish is on your machine.
