Three weeks ago, we brought you news that researchers had apparently found serious vulnerabilities in the firmware of HP printers that can allow hackers to cause the fuser to overheat and almost make the paper inside catch fire. HP dismissed these claims as exaggerated, but said that they would look into it. Three days later, we reported that some enterprising New Yorker called David Goldblatt sued HP, alleging that he would not have bought their printers had he known about this problem beforehand, which seems a bit unlikely when you consider that HP is the number one printer brand by a mile. Now HP have released patches for these vulnerabilities and issued the following press release: It will be interesting to see if Goldblatt's opportunistic lawsuit now continues, given that the flaws are easily fixed with a patch and the printers should be sitting behind a firewall anyway. Somehow, it looks like Goldblatt's opportunity has vanished as quickly as one can say "update".
