"...plant a trojan on the printer..."

Corporations with poor decision making skills could have their board room printer hacked. Any document entitled "Minutes" could have the word "not" inserted and/or removed where required to reverse the sense of all formal decisions. Thus all corporate decisions would be reversed in the hacked printer firmware used to print the Minutes. Overnight, from 95% bad decisions to 95% correct decisions. Amazing!

This one simple ~500 byte hack, applied to a few dozen printers around the world, may end the recession that has been gripping the world economy.
