    >yeah, that's on you
    there's no reason to implement a prophylactic measure against it when they're not liable in the first place

      the feds will shut you down if you try to sell a printer that doesn't print tracking dots on every document
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_Identification_Code
      this means every printer manufacturer allowed to operate is consumer-hostile and will use predatory monetization models if they can make them work.

      Yeah printers are like the one piece of computer hardware that are still pains in the fricking ass to deal with, we've solved most of the issues out of the 80s/90s with other hardware but printers act like it's still that era.

      Unless you're actually a professional photographer, there is no reason to get anything but the cheapest black/white laser printer. If you need super nice colors on quality paper, just go to your nearest photo center and pay the couple of cents to print it out there.

    I hate these modern printer scanner combos. Can't even scan documents without an ink cartridge. I ended up throwing the whole thing away.

    the only people they can blame for that is themselves. printer ink cartridges have no reason to be that complex. its a fricking box with ink in it. why on earth does a fricking ink cartridge have the ability to store anything other than ink.

    I'm probably just too boomer to understand, but why and how you can "get a virus" from plastic container that has ink in it?

      The ink has nanomachine nanobot nanovirus nanoparticles in it that will travel to the circuit board and use nanoelectronics to infect the system with a nanopayload of nanovirus.
      Of course this is all too small to see so just trust us goy, science says so.

    imo HP is based for exploiting morons who are still stupid enough to buy inkjet printers
    professional printing shops don't care anyways because cost is transferred onto client

    I bought a brother printer around 10 years ago for about 80 bucks. I've done nothing but use the original toner that came with it. When it runs out, I'll probably go and buy another toner cartridge from Brother.

    I don't mind buying first party ink. I DO mind needing to be subscribed to get any ink at all to work.

    Mm, printer ink. More expensive than the most expensive perfumes. Cartridges that have preset page counts and can be 90% full on "emptying". Firmware that bricks because of unapproved cartridges.
    People who buy these spurious arguments are the real fools - payload injection via printer? Novel, done before. Also done a million other ways, and good luck infiltrating a secured network that way. If you can, you are a fricking code GOD.

    printers are often easy picking and used to pivot further into the network, look into the lazarus heist
    it's a reason HTB academy has a own course in hacking them
    however what Lores claims is a stretch obviously aimed at fricking consumers

      So you're telling me that if I pick up a toner cart for my laser printer that is dumb as dumb as can be, it will infiltrate whatever payload it has onto my Synology router through my laptop connected to it via USB?
