Chinese computer giant Lenovo has been the victim of a cyber-attack this week, after the U.S. government recently issued a warning about a software called Superfish. The software in question is an adware program which offers shopping tips to online users. The software somehow made its way to some of Lenovo’s notebooks.
A hacking group that goes by the name of Lizard Squad has claimed responsibility for the cyber-attack through its twitter account. Due to the attack, traffic on the official website of the company was redirected. Work is being done to make the website fully functional again.
The company has stated that following the cyber-attack, the network security is being reviewed and steps would be taken to ensure that user information is protected at any cost.
