Chimicles & Tikellis LLP is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of individuals and businesses who purchased new Dell laptop and desktop computers beginning in August 2015 that contain a dangerous security flaw that could leave private user data open to hackers.
At issue is a root certificate package, called “eDellRoot” that was reportedly preinstalled on all newly manufactured Dell PCs that were shipped since August 2015. Dell has reportedly acknowledged that this certificate has “introduced a security vulnerability,” leaving users vulnerable to cyber intrusions including online eavesdropping and malware attacks. The certificate may allow hackers and cyber criminals to read private encrypted messages and redirect traffic for the purposes of phishing and data theft.
C&T is investigating whether consumers may have claims for damages against Dell. If you purchased a Dell computer since August 2015, which you believe may have the preinstalled root certificate, eDellRoot, please click on the “Email us about this Case” button to contact the attorneys below.
