What is Superfish?  How To Remove and Uninstall?

What is Superfish? How To Remove and Uninstall?

Superfish is a pre-installed adware that Lenovo installed on laptop computers over the past two years. Superfish (Superfish Visual Discovery) is a security flaw that
could reveal users shopping, credit card information, personal data, email, and other
online activity. Superfish image algorithm might not be the security risk. The
software that Superfish used from other companies can eavesdrop when internet users
visit secure or encrypted websites. The software replaces the encrypted code on
websites with its own. Homeland Security issued an alert that Lenovo customers
should remove Superfish due to hacking dangers.

Microsoft Windows Defender has removed Superfish certificate entirely in hopes to
prevent Superfish from running on Windows. Although this is not a guarantee it
will help those who were not aware of Superfish or how to remove it. Hopefully
Firefox will follow suit because the certificate is still in place on Firefox.
