Apparently Lenovo website has just been hacked.
I tried to go to the Lenovo site and Nod32 blocked it as a virus.
Is that something to do with the Superfish issue.
Apparently Lenovo has installed the superfish adware to its laptops which installs a certificate so webbrowser searches go to superfish servers and superfish can see where they have been browsing and people are talking class action lawsuits

Is that right?
I have a Lenovo PC with Windows 7

I read that it was a DNS hack rather than the website itself. Seems to be back to normal now for me. 


We use Lenovo laptops at work but all of them get installed with a fresh image so no traces of nasties here. Still not a real good look for them and does make me think about whether we should be ordering kit from a company that thinks this was an ok thing to do.
