Exreme caution!!! Your 3D printer might be hacked!!

So you are new and have problems with your printer? :? Nothing sticks to the bed? :x
You didn't load the latest AVG 3D printer AV firmware?? :oops:

Print won't stick to bed-- oh yeah, definitely, your printer was hacked.
ABS cracks between layers- Yep, some hacker put an intentional defect in your file while you weren't looking.
Extruder jammed- yep you got the Bob Marley virus (always be jammin)

If you suspect hacking or a virus, I highly recommend to pack that printer up and send it to our research lab. 8-)

Well that is not something I expected to read, I had to hold back my laughs. In reality it is possible for the machines to be hacked and for the hacker to obtain the users information or models that are not intended for the public view. Corporate espionage is not something I had thought about, well I guess it is time to learn about Jet's top secret projects!

I was wondering why I was receiving Amazon payment confirmations for packages heading to Russia from my N2Plus IP address :P

I figured it was the printer or my dog was doing some shopping for a mail order bride he was eying on Pooches and More...
