Leo Laporte discussed this "man-in-the-middle" malware at length during his show today. Like the BBC article stated, he considers it a very serious security flaw, potentially compromising all secure communication between the user and their banks, online stores, etc. Because of this, he will no longer recommend Lenovo laptops, and suggests his listeners look elsewhere when buying a new laptop.

Gary, Ed and Angelo were having this very discussion, including Laporte's scolding of Lenovo, earlier on facebook.
