    Wow Macca, that is a shocker !

    Than you very much on the behalf of all of the users of ROB and as many of the public that this website can get to to pass on this information.

    I know that the initial report was from CBS news and that it applies to America, but if ALL such laser copiers, including the ones used in Britain have this bad flaw it is about time that this information was made clear to all individuals and companies that use these machines.

    I did note that on one of the machines a special upgrade that costs $500.00 extra will automatically delete anything on the hard-drive store. I think that this software should be included in ALL machines and it should be free with information on how to operate it. If this was done then the onus would be removed from the manufacturers and would be placed squarely on the backs of the users.

    I note that nothing was said in that video about inkjet copiers also having a hard-drive that holds everything that has been printed in memory as if they also have this problem we are looking at many more millions of dangerous machines floating around out there.

    I plan to take this serious and dangerous story to my favourite tabloid, ( The Scottish Daily Record ), and if they are smart enough they could use this as a British exclusive exposÚ of the problem.

    I will report here if this newspaper runs this story !

    Once again Macca, thanks for the heads up !

    Brilliant stuff !

    Hi Macca. Just chucking a hyperlink at us without adding your own opinion to it is a bit troll-like is it not ?

    I hope you are not just trying to wind up the good folk of ROB by this action.

    C'mon back good buddy and give us your own spin on the subject.
