Download.com and Others Bundle Superfish-Style HTTPS Breaking Adware

Lenovo was bundling HTTPS-hijacking Superfish adware, Comodo ships with an even worse security hole called PrivDog, and dozens of other apps like LavaSoft are doing the same. It’s really bad, but if you want your encrypted web sessions to be hijacked just head to CNET Downloads or any freeware site, because they are all bundling HTTPS-breaking adware now.

3 Questions to Ask Before Putting Cameras on Cops

3 Questions to Ask Before Putting Cameras on Cops | Cyber Security | Scoop.it
