SSL is not allowed in China without a license for it. Even if you use it anyway, my understanding is that it is proxied and intercepted so it doesn't matter. But technically you are not even allowed to use SSL (SSL is a form of VPN which is a controlled access thing in China.)
This is basically a huge scale Lenovo issue and has been pointed to as to why it is considered acceptable by some people for why Lenovo attempted something similar - because they are so used to this type of thing in China that hijacking SSL security seemed natural while in the west it is unthinkable.
