Bugs & Viruses Columbia University researchers claim millions of HP printers could be open to remote attack via unsecured Remote Firmware Updates. Cybercriminals could steal personal information or attack otherwise secure networks. HP agrees there is a theoretical security problem but says no customer has ever reported unauthorized printer access. The company denies some of the claims and is still investigating others.

Tell your customers to report their HP printer incidents to HP! HP is publicly saying that no customer has ever reported a successful exploit against their printers (as per the posting and referenced article). They need to hear otherwise if this is not the case.
