Connecticut launches probe into Lenovo use of Superfish software

BOSTON (Reuters) – Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen’s office said on Monday it has launched an investigation into Lenovo Group Ltd’s sales of laptops preloaded with Superfish software, which the U.S. government last month warned made users vulnerable to cyberattacks.

The office said that Jepsen last week sent letters to Lenovo, the world’s biggest personal computer maker, and privately held software maker Superfish asking them to provide information, including contracts and emails that discuss their partnership.

Representatives for the two companies could not immediately be reached for comment.
