Anyone out there being hit with this? I'm tracking it on my forum now; looks like an optional update has been released. (Visit website on my profile for details.)

I haven’t updated, but I rarely have the need to print stuff so it doesn’t really affect me.

It was mostly obscure printers that were affected: Dymo, Kyocera, and such. The actual issue involved a privilege elevation, which those printers invoke on display of the dialog box. HP, Canon, and such write their own stuff so I guess they avoided this. Thing is, Windows had a very similar problem about 18 months ago. There's just not a lot of robust software discipline out of MS on this.
