When my old hp business ink jet died I replaced it with a colour hp m252dw  laserjet for about 150.

That has been superseded by the  m252dw for 150 less 50 cashback

TBH, given the prices of colour lasers now, as a general purpose printer, inkjets shouldn't really be considered now :y

Inkjets still have a niche in some areas, so aren't completely dead.

Just bought this to keep TB happy, also it gives me a colour option to supplement my new mono laser printer.

At the discounted price too good to miss 8)

Just be careful how you configure those networked printers.  I have done some work on this in the past and found that most makes are highly vulnerable to attack and many, once pwned, can be used to pivot on to other devices on the network.  This article talks about Brother printers but in reality they aren't the worst....

I think you could replace "networked printers" with "anything attached to the network" - though your point is entirely valid. The security of any IoT device is pretty universally shite.

Someone asked me yesterday if they should enable the WiFi on their cooker... I looked at them like they'd gone mad.

From what I found, printers were especially vulnerable due to the functionality they offer to the user, moreso when they were connected to AD.

I have no problem with enabling such features on cookers and cameras so long as they are done correctly. i.e. changing password defaults, firewalling it off to restrict to the internal network or NATing and defining the whitelist whom/whatever requires access, keepnig firmware up to date, etc, etc, etc......

But yes if they are asking if they should do it then I suspect they dont know what they are doing and should put whatever tech they own in a box and send it back to the manufacturer.

Things which no average punter will even consider, hence the issue.

If it's not secured by taking it out of its box and plugging it in, we're doomed.
