Spy agencies reportedly ban PC maker Lenovo on security issues


The top personal computer maker today, Lenovo, has been initially banned by spy agencies from US, UK and Australia because of security issues found on test.

“After intensive laboratory testing of its equipment allegedly documented “back-door” hardware and “firmware” vulnerabilities in Lenovo chips,” Australian Financial Review report reads.

More of the report, Many of the exploits found on Lenovo machines can lead to remote backdoor access by hackers – “back-door” hardware and “firmware” vulnerabilities in Lenovo chips.”

The alleged presence of these hardware “back doors” remains highly classified however.

In a statement, Lenovo commented, it is not aware of those ban.

This brought us in “doubtful mind” since we already hear surveillance systems like NSA’s PRISM.
