EFF To Texas AG: Epson Tricked Its Customers With a Dangerous Fake Update

It’s bad enough that Epson and HP have pursued their profits through these deceptive and illegitimate means, but what’s even worse is that in so doing, they have actively poisoned the cybersecurity well. That’s why their misconduct is all of our concern.

We’ll keep you updated on our dealings with the Texas AG, and don’t forget, we want to hear from Epson customers in other states so we can get AGs across America on the case.

I always feel bad about applying game console system updates because I got it into my head that they’re used to brick homebrew-compatible systems.

Yep, I’m the same way. I won’t update such a device unless it is in my way otherwise. Of course, now I just don’t even bother. But yeah, console creators are not to be trusted. :face_with_monocle:
