Lenovo has just released an automatic removal tool for the Superfish software it pre-installed on some of its notebooks in 2014. This follows a manual procedure that the company detailed yesterday, and an update to Microsoft's Windows Defender from this morning that will also remove the software and its root certificate.
Alongside the automatic removal tool, Lenovo also issued an updated statement on Superfish. In it, the company notes that it is currently working with third-parties to address the issue for even those unaware of it:
This statement follows one earlier today from Levovo CTO Peter Hortensius in which he said the company 'messed up' by installing the software on its machines. Further, Hortensius said that Lenovo will detail a plan for improving its software practices later in February.
