I recommend wiping and installing Ubuntu over it, myself.

By installing a single self-signed root certificate (trust me: That’s really bad) across all of Lenovo’s affected machines, Superfish intentionally pokes a gigantic hole into your browser security and allows anyone on your Wi-Fi network to hijack your browser silently and collect your bank credentials, passwords, and anything else you might conceivably type there. As Errata Security’s Robert Graham put it, “I can intercept the encrypted communications of SuperFish’s victims (people with Lenovo laptops) while hanging out near them at a cafe wifi hotspot.” If you have a Lenovo laptop that has Superfish on it (try Filippo Valsorda’s Superfish test to see), I would advise nothing short of wiping the entire machine and installing vanilla Windows—not Lenovo’s Windows. Then change all of your passwords.
Also in Slate: How to tell if you have Superfish, and how to kill it. When Lenovo preinstalled Superfish adware on its laptops, it betrayed its customers and sold out their security. It did it for no good reason, and it may not even have known what it was doing....

Ha!
 
This is probably the best summary ever of just what the working breeds are like. Terrifying, yet pleasing. Some of their tails may mature into semiautomatic weapons.

Got my LG G Watch up and running so the first watch face I had to buy was this, of course.

After more than a month of impaired vision I can almost see mostly clearly, again. I took all these pictures on a short, three-block walk in San Diego.

These are the raw pictures. The finished pictures with captions can be found on my "scottmgs" Instagram stream. Look for  #organicpatterns .

It's almost unbelievable how bad this is. If you have a Lenovo computer, take the time to check if you have this Superfish program and learn how to remove it.
Computer maker Lenovo preinstalled adware that security researchers say leaves owners vulnerable to hackers. But there's a way to get rid of it. Also, Samsung has a new weapon against Apple Pay after acquiring LoopPay.

And then Lenovo's comment on the pre-bundled "helpware" that had a self-signed root HTTPS certificate capable of intercepting encrypted traffic for every visited website was all like "We have thoroughly investigated this technology and do not find any evidence to substantiate security concerns" and I was imagining the security peeps a few cubes over being all like...

If Uber, Lyft, and others don't stop relying on contract workers, business could crumble. Is it time for a new definition of employee?

A convenient and relatively inexpensive place to stop. You may have to ask for the advertised special meals if they aren't in the menu.

I had urgent retinal reattachment surgery here with Dr. Lipson. Considering the scary circumstances (!!!) I felt warmly and competently taken care of by everyone who shepherded me through induction, prep, surgery and post-op. While I do *not* recommend having a detached retina, I *do* recommend this team if you have need of them!

Jacob came at the end of his workday to replace our water heater. He was efficient, professional and personable. I would call Payless again and recommend them to others.

The rich frozen custard is delicious! I'm less of a fan of the Italian ices but that's a personal preference and they do have some interesting flavors, e.g. Gingerbread! The serving size cups *look* small (when you're used to humongous 7-11 slurpees and monstrous Coldstone serving sizes) but they are generous and sufficient.

The "small" calzone is HUGE! It's definitely enough food for two people. The pizzas are great and the antipasto salad is wonderful. Great flavors, generous portions, attentive staff, good prices, nice atmosphere.

My favorite Greek restaurant! An authentic, family-run place. With a wide variety of Greek dishes. They make their own delicious desserts, too! We come here for many family celebrations and we're always warmly welcomed.
