Bloatware is what companies are adding to the devices unpacked. Though it may promote the company’s useless applications that are purposelessly installed by default. The bloatware not only eat the memory on the device but also brings vulnerabilities along with them as per the observation kept on Lenovo PCs causing security issues.
The Lenovo computers that are shipped in between the years 2014 and 2015 have exposed a log of non-identifiable Pc information to the Lenovo resulting in the installing of OneKey Optimizer bloatware on the laptops in their first connection to the internet itself. There also found some other vulnerabilities that tend PC to clean install the OS with their malware activity.
The online security of Lenovo laptops has remained a question with the inclusion of unnecessary software on the computers. Many security issues of such behaviours that are found later didn’t follow the guidelines of anti-theft software.
Since the security systems are expelling the Lenovo’s bloatware and other suspicious behaviours of the computer, the company have stopped producing the machines like Service Engines for enterprises.
We have already seen a malware called Superfish Visual Discovery, a browser extension that recommends the cheaper alternatives to the product images on the webpage. it might sound useful but annoying when it overtakes the browser expereince.
Windows 8 operating system is some what constant in resisting these malware behaviours with its built-in Platform Binary Table feature.
However, if you using the Windows operating system that is lower than Windows 8, you should be aware of the unknown activity on the system. Think a while before buying the Lenovo computers.
