Security Vulnerability HPSBHF03589 rev. 5

HP Recommended
Officejet Pro 8600
macOS 10.14 Mojave

On 10/27/18 I recieved notice of Critical Security Vulnerability HPSBHF03589 rev. 5.   Recently I downloaded and updated the only firmware listed for my mac which was the Easy Start software dated 8/9/18 as shown when the files were uploaded to the mac.  I'm not computer expert. But I was a bit concerned that the noticed Vulnerability update of 10/2018 would not have been included in software last updated (according to my data) 2.5 months prior.   Any thoughts anyone?

Welcome to HP forums, I see that you are getting Security Vulnerability HPSBHF03589 rev. 5 notice.


I made a research and see that according to this HP document click here, updating printer firmware should fix the issue.

Follow the below steps to update the printer firmware from the printer display directly:

  1. Touch or press the HP ePrint icon or button ( or ), touch or press Settings or Setup if necessary, then touch or press Product Update or Check Product Updates.
  2. If you are prompted to sign up or accept terms of service, follow any on-screen instructions to enable Web Services and setup automatic updates. This procedure sets up the printer's Internet connection so it can receive updates.

  3. If the printer does not automatically start the update process, select Check for Updates or a similar menu to start the update.
