[citation][nom]memadmax[/nom]Why would someone hack a printer for?[/citation]

Networked devices with their own SoC could be used for any number of applications. Rewrite the firmware and voila its a tad more than a printer....

Now the Nigerians can hack your printer and when you come to the office you find a half dozen certificates of selected Swiss funds available for withdrawal.
The submit form for the transfer taxes will also have been printed for your convenience :)

One more reason not to buy Samsung. It took them three months to replace a defective printer cartridge (kept failing to send, sent to wrong address, etc...). They also failed to promptly patch a bug on their hard drive controller which caused them to lockup. After these two incidents I swore I would never buy another Samsung product.
