Printing securely?

Post by safemist » Thu Oct 19, 2017 4:51 pm

Hi

If I allow the print spooler to do its thing under normal circumstances, can an infected file which I am trying to print contaminate my pc through the temp folder?

Is it worth sandboxing the system temp and the user temp folders? I'm thinking of making the printing process as secure as possible.

Thanks

Hello safemist,

Please have a look at these threads:

The spooler changes were introduced with version 4.18, please see more info here:

Regarding the temp folder, here are a few related threads:
