That's scary!  I can't even begin to tell you how many documents with sensitive personal information I've copied on company copy machines and printed out on company printers!

Geez, I'm an IT professional and had no idea. Makes me glad I bought one of those all-in-ones so at least the copies I've made have been in my own office. Thanks for posting that.

AJ what makes you think none of the office workers copy your info for some reason?
I think your smart doing that but it really is out of your hands once you turn the info over.

Wonder how well known this info was to thieves before it was brought to a public warning. The really bad thing is, like with the PD copiers most all gov agencies dump their old copiers off to the highest bid. SS offices, IRS, Unemployment and the list goes on. And to discover that some percentage goes over seas. No wonder identy theft is one of the largest businesses in the world.

What frosts my cookies is that all the Copier Manufacturers know about it and want to extort dollars to fix their problem! Sharp wants $500 more.  The OEMs are cuplable since this is in direct violation of Federal Privacy Laws, they should be held accountable and sued!

Not good, and they wonder why there is so much identity theft.  Its because they are giving the information away.  Think about it, it you want to buy a copier to use, you look for a low # count.  If you were looking to hack info, take the cheapest with the highest# possible.

Every account we open here at the bank we make a photo copy of someones drivers license.  Well now I know before we sell our machines to get those suckers wiped clean.

How many copiers from the DoD, CIA, etc. have been traded in for newer models then sold to China, Russia, and so on?

I knew about this, but never realized the lack of security practices by leasing agencies. I am appalled that something has not been done here. especially considering the age we live in now. That the security measures are not mandatory on these machines pisses me off.

The Kyocera and CopyStar lines have an encrypted drive, It is not a problem. It is supposed to rewrite numbers over the used portions of the drive 3 times when files are deleted. Per the manual.
