Dell Ships Exploitable PC’s
Dell has shipped numerous laptop and desktop computers that include a certificate vulnerability.
The resulting exploits are typically associated with theft of banking credentials. The certificate can be removed via Windows Certificate Management tool, but automatically reinstalls itself when the PC is rebooted.
The lapse is similar to an issue that Lenovo had introduced in their product line last year.
