You know announcements like this could be seen as a way to drive sales, as large corporations or governments that are by dictated to by Chief Information Officers or Chief Security Officers that need everything to be "puckered up" tight as far as security goes. How about making this less connected in the first place. All these IoT devices and smart connected printers that you can connect USB devices or print wirelessly from the web etc., are wonderful but make things far more vulnerable. OCIOs and OCSOs have a way of creating new policy directives which require large scale replacement of technology in organizations, which depending on who wins the procurement process, some tech company sees a large windfall. To me, exactly what they wanted to achieve by making these announcements let alone devices with all this vulnerable connectivity.

Found bug in HP printers. All brand new printers come in with 20% inks instead of full so you will have to buy new inks at the price bigger than printer itself. Where to report?
