Superfish site downed after Lenovo debacle

lenovo-logoThe company that is behind the technology that powers Superfish has suffered a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.

That’s according to Forbes, which said the technology is called Komodio and the site is down, with the company saying the DDoS attack has happened because of media interest.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Lenovo distributed malware with some of its machines, although because of the Chinese New Year, it doesn’t appear able to comment on the debacle.

Forbes talked to the founder of Komodia, a man who formerly worked for Israeli cyber intelligence. He said that he couldn’t comment on the Lenovo debacle because he’s under contract to the Chinese company.

But the Komodia software is included on many other software programs and is pretty easy to hack.

Software include some parental control software and in other web filter programs available worldwide.
