Lexmark has provided me with a patch to fix their firmware so that it
doesn't crash when you hit it with nestea2 or syndrop but they haven't
gotten it up on their website yet. If anyone would like it just let me
know and I will send the files to you.
I have to say that I was rather impressed with the speed at which
Lexmark responded to this issue. I sent the bug report to our Lexmark
Account manager on Wednesday at about noon. He forwarded it to the
Lexmark engineering staff who called me on Thursday saying that they
had a fixed version of the firmware that they were testing and that
they were going to send it to me either later that day or
tomorrow. This morning when I came in it was waiting in my mailbox. He
also said that as part of their quality assurance program they are now
monitoring this list as well as http://www.rootshell.com for things
that might affect their printers.
I have still not heard _ANYTHING_ back from my 5/16 post to HP.
