Removing printer micro dots

Charles Cruz
Charles Cruz

Is there anyway to remove printer micro dots using modified firmware or physical hacks? It seems to me eventually they will crack down on political fliers by tracking down the sources.

What if you anonymously buy a printer in brick-and-mortar paying cash? How is the printer going to be associated with you?
Even if you buy one online where your identity is revealed to the seller (and possibly/probably to other parties more or less directly involved in the transaction), how are they going to track you? Do the microdots correspond to the units serial number, and will they make a record in a database where the printer serial number corresponds to your data?

David Hughes

could probably be used by the cops if they know who they are looking for. then they just have to get the printer from his home and verify that the thing was printed with it.

Lucas Powell

Remember, the whole point about these dots is because the Secret Service required them for _color laser printers_ to prevent counterfeiting. Monochrome laser printers and inkjets don't have them.

Isaiah Rivera

It must be coded on the hardware of the printer by default im guessing

So unless you know how to fix that is pretty much useless, but as anons say, buy a printer with cash and no warranty

But this arises the question, how much info do printers send home?
(((Always online))) stuff is just cancer, obvious measure is to avoid doing it

I believe not all printers have the forensic features you're referring to. In particular. B&W only printers. It's mostly color printers that the Secret Service are concerned with, because of counterfeiting. But if you're still concerned about it:

How to print fake dollars with color laser printer bought anonymously?
If you literally mean dollar bills, I can't imagine that would be economical. The cost of ink + paper + electricity + wear on the printer would make it hard to come out ahead. Counterfeiting larger bills convincingly would be very difficult, as they contain numerous features to keep counterfeiters far more sophisticated than you from copying them. And even if you ran off a few sheets of convincing enough $20s or $50s (the largest bills that don't get much scrutiny) and managed to fool an inattentive shopkeeper or two, you'd undoubtedly be caught in short order. Basically as soon as the shopkeeper made his daily deposit and the bank discovered the fraudulent bills and alerted the Secret Service. Start lubing your shit chute and learning to accommodate cylindrical objects in your rectum now. U.S. Attorneys have something like a 96% conviction/guilty plea rate.
Where to get decent paper?
If you want convincing paper, you'd need to figure out the blend of fibers used in the real deal and get something similar. As I recall, it's some kind of cotton blend. Like the prison jumpsuit you'll be wearing in a few months.

Nigger confirmed. Also you weren't in tech some time (years?) ago when we discussed and investigated this and found evidence for a different form of steganography in use with b&w printers. At the time we concluded all is botnet. Now things have become so bad for freedom of expression we have nothing to lose by jail-breaking printers en masse.

do monchrome printers even have microdots?
Yes. I already stated that in They use some kind of encoded frequency shift. The edges of lines are warped, and it is not due to other factors - like paper fibres for example. There was a thread some time back where we went full autism on the issue. End result - we were not being paranoid enough.

How long does it take for most places to cycle through security footage now that storage is so cheap? Or find a place selling used printers with no cameras. I think Goodwill still has stores without security cameras. Then there is the issue of printers having wireless capability. I suppose get one old enough it doesn't have it (getting ink may be more difficult) or one that you can physically remove the wireless capabilities. I wouldn't doubt if they can't track particular ink cartridges somehow either. Buying remanufactured ones from third parties would be both economical and likely more secure.

No, but they can match a particular document to a particular printer by comparing microscopic surface wear on the pins. Think of how firing pin indents from guns can be matched to particular casings. They have to actually get ahold of the printer first though.

Can confirm user is legit it was around the time of the IOTBW and It's my Borders posting IIRC. There was much more detail about color laser jets which is what I was interested in (pics related), but some anons looked into black and white laser printers and found their prints had wiggly lines, but the lines should have been perfectly straight in those bits which told them something was seeeriously fucky. Too tech for me but I learned enough to stop using my printer for public shitposting. legal only fed no bully plz*

Even I can think of jewgling a good scan of a laser print online or look at one under a magnifying glass to prove it! I wasn't interested because I've only got a laser jet but there were about 2,3 of them in the thread looking into it, so he sounds like one of them.
They had some science paper about beating the marking system too, but that was for the color stuff though.

Too tech for me but I
Nigger confirmed.
Although it is still correct in that I did post "some science paper" or in English parlance, a research paper regarding the micro dots and printer watermark obfuscation. Aside from the investigation, another pertinent document for lusers would be those attached.
-A yellow dot template for obfuscation
-A rudimentary procedure manual for its application
The discussion developed further to us querying if such methods were in use within b&w laser printers since the high contrast would negate the stealth aspects used with yellow dots in colour printers. We discovered sufficient evidence for our satisfaction that this was indeed the case because there was noticeably some form of frequency encoding on the letter forms, and which was invariant to the printer's settings. Whether anyone else wishes to prove this to their own satisfaction is their concern, not mine. I have no further time to waste on ingrates after I took the time to not only tell you it exists, but also explain what to look for.

Old school low-res dot-matrix printers don't have tracking dots.

Thermal printers don't have tracking dots either.

Monochrome laser printers and inkjets don't have them.
Imagine believing that. There have been instances of monochrome printers leaving tracking dots.

I'm actually surprised there isn't a program to track dot-free printers (I wonder if a printer directly from China meant for a Chinese consumer would have these dots).

Should be trivial to find out with any modern DSLR with a macro lens. Such a setup would be cheaper and better (assuming good lighting setup) than even a top-of-the-line high-dpi scanner.

I do wonder if printers sold in foreign countries by foreign brands have these dots?

Why don't you try printing a tiny dot in black and see if you notice it. Doubt you would. Forget about microdots, even a 3pt period is difficult to notice.

Microdots are just one of the ways to encode this info anyway. Plenty of other ways out there.

Like I said, the only completely safe printers are old-school low-res dot-matrix ones.

You joke but a basic inkjet printer isn't that difficult:

Monochrome laser printers are mostly shitty plastic consumer crap. I am sure if you had a print out and compared it to other printouts you could find manufacturing defects and other subtle differences that set a specific printer apart from another printer just like you can with a type writer or dot matrix printer. And if you had the suspected printer you could match it up with a printout. The only problem with this is if your suspect replaces the toner cartage he replaces everything that actually lays the toner down on to the paper. So all those little defects will change just like changing the barrel of a gun.

I have yet to find any proof that there is strait up steganography like there is with color laser and BJ printers.

That way when the cops in their extreme autism to find you eventually get to the store and find the nigger that bought the printer for you, the nigger can't identify you.

Unless the store makes a record of the serial number of every printer they sell (highly unlikely), this would accomplish nothing. They wouldn't even have a way to narrow down the date of the sale.

When are we gonna get laser printers that actually use lasers to burn text and images into the paper and ditch black paint forever?

the serial number could have some meaning too. instead of just being a bunch of random numbers it could contain the date it was made and who ordered that batch and possible other identifying things too.. sure that wont tell them that its exactly you who bought it but it helps. they could then go to the store and ask who bought that model of printer and maybe see you in the security cameras. the average nigger is not a tech user who knows how to not get caught so that kind of shit would usually work.

It gives the serial number of your printer.
You track the shipment to the store it was sold at and review their sales records.
Geek Squad doesn't open your new printer to record its serial along with your identity. I've never had to show ID to buy a printer. Pretty sure I've bought one with cash before too.
I have had a cashier record my name along with the serial number of a new bicycle though. That's the law in Hawaii. Bikes are registered vehicles there

To all the fags who think you need to open up the box to get the serial number of a printer. The barcode has the serial number embedded into the scan. The store is sent a digital record of all the printers' barcodes and associated printer serial numbers that is handled by their point of sale system i.e the computer connected to the computer in the bar code scanner. As soon as its scanned its sent back to the manufacturer/mossad for record keeping.

This method means that the store clerks, or even owners, know nothing of the autotracking of products through their barcode. Only the IT guy does but most store outsource their IT to mossad shell companies masquerading as nsa/gchq/huawei shell companies like akami or godaddy. Because when it comes down to it the kikes have their hands up all the intelligence communitie's asses.

The barcode has the serial number embedded into the scan.
I'm pretty sure every printer of the same model has an identical UPC

Wyatt Roberts
Wyatt Roberts

Yeah I just looked it up. You're a lying nigger.
techterms.com/definition/upc
The first digit in a UPC code represents the country of origin (0 for the United States)
and the next five digits identify the manufacturer.
Digits 7 through 11 identify the specific product.
The twelfth digit serves as checksum, which checks the validity of the preceding 11 numbers.
None of the digits contain a serial number.
The cashier only scans the UPC. They do not open the box to scan the serial barcode sticker stuck to the printer itself. The serial number cannot be written on the outside of the package because then people would copy it and use it for warranty/registration fraud. Same as a new Windows DVD doesn't have its COA sticker on the outside of the package. You dumb nigger.

If you pay attention to the retail box you'll notice there are multiple barcodes on each one

Mason Lewis

You stupid fucker its not the number its the bar with the squigeleies itself that contains the information. Have you ever actually scanned one of those things with something that isn't supplied by a store? See the superset of UPC, EAN en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Article_Number_(EAN) archive.fo/7ljET
The 020-029 GS1 Prefixes are worth a special mention. GS1 defines this as being available for retailer internal use (or internal use by other types of business). Some retailers use this for proprietary (own brand or unbranded) products, although many retailers obtain their own manufacturer's code for their own brands. Other retailers use at least part of this prefix for products which are packaged in store, for example, items weighed and served over a counter for a customer. In these cases, the barcode may encode a price, quantity or weight along with a product identifier

If you want to get real fucking technical, the manufacturer specifies the 020-029 GS1 prefix at the manufacturer's factory for printers or other items and then sends a standardized reading of what that fucking means to the POS software distributers who then include it in every retailers POS without them knowing/caring via automatic updates or whatnot. So when the scanner at the cash register scans it the proccess is fully automatic.

Angel Peterson

Also of note is that some manufacturers do include the serial number in the EAN code because they think the goyim are so stupid and will never read it and have you heard of anyone doing scams involving unboxed serial numbers?. While some manufacturers put a number there that only associates to the serial code in a database, kinda like a hash but easily reversible if you have the input/serial code.

Here's an example POS EAN scanner archive.fo/6dmeU
The great thing about EAN128, is that is the barcode can contain multiple information. So in the example, I have included pallet/SSCC and itemId, and when is it scanned, the system will automatically fill in the fields for me :
Out of the box, Dynamics AX can decode the following application identifiers of EAN128:
(00) SSCC – PalletID. The item arrival journal will also create the pallet ID in DAX
(01)+(02) EAN – Itembarcode, that will then identify itemid + product dimensions
(10) Batch
<(21) Serial number
(30) Quantity –

The Oki B4600 comes pretty close to that ideal. They've been making them for over a decade. It emulates the PCL standard so it can use generic drivers that target the standard.
