The class-action lawsuit, filed in June, 2015, alleged that the lenovo laptops’ VisualDiscovery enabled Superfish to monitor a computer user’s internet activity and using the information gained, send tailored advertisements to the user, which violated consumer privacy, and left computer users vulnerable to security breaches. Additionally, the consumers claim the software made the computers perform less well than they otherwise should have, wasting the computers’ memory and causing the computer to run inefficiently.
