The class action lawsuit was brought on behalf of consumers who purchased Lenovo notebooks in late 2014 and early 2015 and alleges that Lenovo bundled Superfish’s “VisualDiscovery” ad-serving software with notebooks which contained security flaws.

Superfish is a program that inserts ads into a variety of Web pages including secure HTTPS pages. To do so, Superfish tinkers with Windows’ cryptographic security, according to numerous reports. But breaking encryption also paves the way for hackers to intercept sensitive data, including passwords and online banking credentials.
