Lenovo Superfish: Corporate greed meets cluelessness

Lenovo undermined its customers' Internet security either accidentally or on purpose; which is worse?

Now that some of the dust has settled from the epic disaster that enveloped Lenovo last week, it’s time to take a close look at what happened, what decisions led to this meltdown, and what we might collectively learn from it.

Primarily, we've been given a list of actions a company should not take in the aftermath of such an event. The response from Lenovo has been, well, bizarre. First the company posted its official statement about the Superfish fiasco on its news site, then proceeded to edit the statement roughly 10,000 times in the days since. I haven’t been able to keep track of all the changes, but it’s safe to say that several people have been kept very busy trying to alter past statements based on what information has been made public.
