HP printere, igen

Jeg er helt og aldeles enig med Electronic Frontier Foundation og Cory Doctorow i “What HP Must Do to Make Amends for Its Self-Destructing Printers“:

  • HP deprived its customers of a useful, legitimate feature
  • HP abused its security update mechanism to trick its customers
  • HP’s time-delayed anti-feature is a bait-and-switch
  • HP has posted a “keep out” sign for security researchers

EFF og Elliot Harmon’s opdatering, efter HP mumlende har undskyldt og måske vil rette op, “Don’t Hide DRM in a Security Update“, er også værd at læse.

HP har stadig ikke rettet op på praksis. Jeg er stadig glad for at ikke længere have HP produkter i huset.
