Security Update For HP Printers Is Available

The BleepingComputer forum topic includes numerous suggestions from Windows admins on how to resolve the networking printing issues caused by the Windows 10 KB5006670 update. Unfortunately, as these suggestions either remove security updates or don't always work, they are not ideal for resolving the issues.

Security update for HP printers is available


I write to you today on behalf of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to defending technological freedom, human rights and privacy in courtrooms, legislatures, and online. Like many others, we are alarmed by reports that HP has activated a dormant feature in Officejet Pro printers (and possibly other models), so that the printers now automatically verify whether its ink cartridges are official HP ink and not competitors' products or even refilled HP cartridges. If these printers detect third-party ink, printing stops. This activation was disguised as a security update.

HP printers, like most other networked computers, have suffered well-documented, catastrophic security vulnerabilities that exposed customers' whole networks to attacks. Because security is a process, not a product, vulnerabilities will continue to surface in your products throughout their lifecycles. Customers need to feel confident that they can accept security updates without compromising basic functionality.

An exploitable kernel driver vulnerability can lead an unprivileged user to a SYSTEM account and run code in kernel mode (since the vulnerable driver is locally available to anyone). Among the obvious abuses of such vulnerabilities are that they could be used to bypass security products.

This issue is related to the latest security updates in which Microsoft is trying to close the Print Nightmare vulnerability. Unfortunately, the updates are not fully tested and cause massive errors 0x0000011b.

To solve the problem, you need to remove the last security update on the computer where the printer is shared (!). Depending on the version and build of Windows on the computer sharing the printer, you need to uninstall one of the following updates:

Microsoft has added these changes in the next security update.You will have to either uninstall the updates, or permanently enable the registry setting parameter RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators = 0reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers\PointAndPrint" /v RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /fSo far, only these two workarounds are known.

So that was two hours of my life I won't get back, and I do wonder how many older HP printers will end up landfill due to what I assume is a Windows Security update to block some autorun run vulnerability?

Sometimes a newly available Windows update can be the key to resolving your printer issues and errors on Windows 11. It is possible you weren't notified about the latest Windows update, so it's worth checking out if a new version is available manually.

Still, now might be a good time for businesses and consumers to reassess the security of their existing printers and consider actions to avoid hacking fallout. For those in need of new printers, the holiday shopping season might provide some good pricing deals.

Hirvonen and Bolshev contacted HP last spring with their findings and worked with the company to patch the vulnerabilities. HP has now published firmware updates and security advisories for the affected devices.

Some Windows users are experiencing the 0x0000011b error whenever they attempt to print something using their network-shared printer. This problem started to occur after Microsoft pushed the latest security update. The issue is ongoing on Windows 10 and Windows 11.

However, our recommendation is to avoid this resolution (if possible), since uninstalling the KB5005565 will also mean that your PC will still be vulnerable to the two vulnerabilities that this security update was meant to protect you from (PrintNightmare and MSHTML).

Schmitz said that this is part of a broader HP Client Security Strategy, to provide the deepest security across PCs and printers. Three security elements are being featured: a self-healing BIOS, secure whitelisting, and run-time intrusion detection.

All these new features will be standard on new HP LaserJet Enterprise printers and OfficeJet Enterprise X printers with HP PageWide Technology going forward, and are also backward compatible on the new HP LaserJet Enterprise printers available since the spring through HP FutureSmart service pack updates. The microcontroller for Sure Start is already on these devices and requires only a firmware update.

The HP LaserJet Enterprise M506 series will be generally available on October 1, priced between $USD 649 and $USD 949. The HP LaserJet Enterprise MFP M527 and HP Color LaserJet Enterprise MFP M577 series printers will both be generally available on November 2. The M527 is priced between $USD 17-99 and $USD 2599. The M577 lists between $USD 2,199 and $USD 3,099.

For all apps that require a Internet connection, especially other web browsers, it's advised to uninstall the AppStore version and use the version directly available from the developers website if it contains a auto-update feature.

HP research suggests just 53 percent of IT managers realise printers are vulnerable to cyber crime and just 2 percent of printers are secure, making them easy targets for hackers compared to other devices where security is now often built-in.

One of the security features included in the A3 printers is HP Sure Start, a self-updating technology that was initially developed for PCs to help them protect themselves against malicious attacks or malfunctions. 350c69d7ab
