Dangerous Certificate on Dell laptops could intercept your encrypted data

Super Fish

Superfish or not, it’s not very pleasant knowing your encrypted data to and from the Internet might not be encrypted at all, due to a Dell faulty certificate residing on your laptop.

The certificate installs itself from the Dell Foundation Services software available from the Dell website. It’s interesting to note that it was last updated on the 24th November 2015 with minor bug fixes!
