Brother Printers - Using Forensic Tracking Dots


Brother Industries, Ltd. is a Japanese multinational electronics and electrical equipment company headquartered in Nagoya, Japan. Its products include printers, multifunction printers, desktop computers, industrial sewing machines, large machine tools, label printers, typewriters, fax machines, and other computer-related electronics. Brother distributes its products both under its own name and under OEM agreements with other companies.

Thus they are supposed to have a secret agreement with the U.S government.

To be honest I did use a Brother Laserjet, however it was how to put it nicely, pure shit after 300 pages printed.

Brother Printers Tested Positive For Forensic Tracking Dots
  HL-2700CN volunteer tested - Positive
  HL-4200CN EFF tested - Positive

These above laser printers leave tracking marks, that can identify you.

As of 2017 EFF don't test printers, since they all are assumed to have succumbed to the U.S Government.

However, if you want to make a test if your brand new Brother printer uses tracking dots, then print out a document, then look at the paper using blue light and / or a computer microscope.

If you own an Brother whether its black & white or color and feel like doing a test, send the results here and we will publish it.

Games For Linux

Windows has always been the preferred platform for gaming, but after STEAM's interest in Linux more game developers are making their games natively available for Linux.
