I'm not into counterfeiting. There was a debate.., so I decided to go deeper with curiosity.

EURion constellation is a pattern incorporated into banknotes. So photocopiers and printers if they obey the rule will not copy/print your banknote.

My question: if you buy, for example, a modern Xerox photocopiers it will refuse to copy the banknote with Eurion constellation. Can a hacker modify the firmware the photocopier to disable this feature?

  • Question #1: Probably. Question #2: Probably. Your first question is very broad and your second question does not really belong on this page. Could you narrow your first question down to a specific problem? – Tom K. Oct 2 at 8:53
  • Doesn't the printer use authenticated firmware? – kelalaka Oct 2 at 8:56
  • @TomK. actually, the questions complete each other. Assume that you cannot buy a printer without EURion, can someone hack it? Or they have good countermeasures against the hackers. – kelalaka Oct 2 at 9:01

    You say "the printer", but what printers are we talking about? What models? What vendors? You really have to give us some more information here. – Tom K. Oct 2 at 9:20

    Just add any specifics to your question that you can. For instance what exactly is the EURion constellation? Which printers (supposedly) recognize this constellation? What would you understand as "disable this feature"? etc. – Tom K. Oct 2 at 9:33
