    Re: Lenovo Fingerprint Manager has a serious security flaw

    “a vulnerability has been identified in lenovo fingerprint manager pro. Sensitive data stored by lenovo fingerprint manager pro, including users’ windows logon credentials and fingerprint data, is encrypted using a weak algorithm, contains a hard-coded password, and is accessible to all users with local non-administrative access to the system it is installed in.”
    Rofl. That is not a vulnerability, that is chronically poor design and QA. Who signed off on that?

    With all of the bad news lenovo gets, I'm not sure I'd ever consider getting one.
