Re: IT IS THE SAME ONE IN ALL CASES??

Its actually an ongoing thing. Like an STD, it's the gift that keeps on giving.

The news broke up early this day about the SuperFish thing, to someone ripping up the malware and finding that the fake CA was embedded within the installed program, to the discovery that the password was easily guessable (and related to another product that does a similar thing), to confirmation that all SuperFish installs use the same public/private key combinations.

Someone at Lenovo is definitely having a very bad day.
