Lenovo hacked!

PC and laptop maker Lenovo has been taking a lot of criticism lately after news broke that it shipped out new computers last year with Superfish adware preinstalled. The Superfish adware watches what you're doing online so it could serve you relevant ads. But the way Superfish works means that any hacker can direct you to malicious websites and bypass any warnings you might normally get that the site is fake.

Microsoft even stepped in and issued an update for Windows Defender that will get rid of the nasty program on affected computers. But, Superfish may now be the least of Lenovo's problems. That's because it looks like the infamous Lizard Squad group has hacked Lenovo's website.

People trying to reach Lenovo's website yesterday were treated to a slideshow of bizarre images set to music. Later on, anyone trying to visit the page ran into a DNS resolution error page.

It looks like Lizard Squad is behind the attack, because the images that originally showed up following the hack led to the group's @LizardCircle Twitter account. The website appears to be back up and running now, but that might not be the end of Lenovo's Lizard Squad problem.
