Lenovo has revealed that its laptops are becoming more and more difficult to detect as malware attempts to compromise the computer’s security.
In a blog post, the company said that Lenovo laptops had recently seen more than 2,000 malware infections in the past 12 months, up from only 1,500 in the previous year.
The malware is designed to make it difficult for the user to open the computer or shut down it remotely.
The company said the malware has been discovered on Lenovo computers running its Core M line and Core M Pro models, as well as the Lenovo IdeaPad X1 Carbon and IdeaPad Y1.
The blog post also said that malware attempts have been detected on more than 700 Lenovo PCs, but it did not specify which models had been infected.
“Lenovo laptops are designed to be secure against threats from malware,” the company wrote.
“We’re continually working to strengthen the security and integrity of our computers.”
It’s unclear whether the malware is still present on the devices.
Lenovo has launched an initiative to upgrade the security of its laptops and tablets to detect and block malware.
