HP Inc has posted an update to address a pair of serious security vulnerabilities in its InkJet printers.
The firmware update patches CVE-2018-5924 and CVE-2018-5925, two flaws that can be exploited by printing a file that triggers a stack or static buffer overflow, giving you the ability to then execute malicious code on the targeted printer. (more…)
The R2000 was unveiled at the FESPA Global Print Expo in Berlin, and coupled with the new HP Latex White Ink – which helps printers deliver the glossiest white on transparent and coloured media. (more…)

Not only characteristics of printers themselves, but also printing solutions help customers enhance productivity. HP has proved this with its new special solutions for workflow optimization, cloud, security and IoT unveiled at the global partner forum—HP Reinvent—held on Sept. 12 in Chicago. The represented solutions and services cover the key areas of printing which need reshaping in more and more digitized world. All four will be available in spring 2018. They include:
HP represents its new model of wide format mobile-enabled budget all-in-ones specially designed for small and home office use. The OfficeJet Pro 7720 provides all the advanced functions available on more costly models, but retails for $199, and produces professional-quality vibrant color and clear black/white output of different formats right on the workplace.
Keeping up with the trends, HP has launched its own portable device—Sprocket Photo Printer. Comparing with the closest competitors—Canon Selphy CP1200 and Polaroid Zip Photoprinter—HP’s photo printer has its essential advantages in design, size and print speed.
The security of the IoT devices has become an issue of intense concern lately especially in the modern office environments which grow their mobility and networking capabilities. Printers and MFPs have got an Internet connection to help enhance office productivity and effectively manage workflows. These means, first of all, that anyone could reach a printer from his mobile device (in some cases already even outside of the office) and, secondly, that printers save and queue printing jobs (which may contain significant and secure information).
So, to turn mass attention to the problem, HP is producing its own web series called “The Wolf”. Hollywood actor Christian Slater is playing a hacker in the first 6-minute-long episode, where he manages to take crucial to the imminent acquisition information via unsecure network printer. The other 4 episodes will hit the Internet during this year, and this is the new approach to the advertizing HP has gained with its “Keep Reinventing” tagline.
P.S. The company is producing the most secure devices in the category which can efficiently integrate with already secured networks, PCs and servers within the office.

With each passing day, the devices belonging to the IoT (Internet of things) become more mobile. Say, earlier, printers were used as intended – meaning only for printing, but now almost every decent machine provides mobile connectivity and cloud services, which makes them vulnerable to an illegal use, for example in hacker’s attacks, or may lead to the loss of company’s significant information.
HP has already turned its attention to the problem and is aiming to redefine IoT security with the newest print product and service enhancements. The company will preconfigure its new printers and add enhanced security options to its Managed Printing Services (MPS).
New implementations will include:
Specialized security support technicians to develop corporate print security plans.
Security advisors helping to deliver ongoing expertise, risk profile updates, providing support for both security plans and compliance audits.
Remote security settings management, which include permanent monitoring of a company’s printer network for potential risks.
