HP Refutes Inaccurate Claims

In response to recent press stories regarding the security vulnerability of HP LaserJet Printers, HP released the statement below. Flo-Tech will provide additional information as it becomes available. In the interim, please contact your Flo-Tech account manager with any questions regarding this announcement.

HP Statement:
Today there has been sensational and inaccurate reporting regarding a potential security vulnerability with some HP LaserJet printers. No customer has reported unauthorized access. Speculation regarding potential for devices to catch fire due to a firmware change is false.

HP LaserJet printers have a hardware element called a “thermal breaker” that is designed to prevent the fuser from overheating or causing a fire. It cannot be overcome by a firmware change or this proposed vulnerability.

While HP has identified a potential security vulnerability with some HP LaserJet printers, no customer has reported unauthorized access.
