Xerox scanners/photocopiers randomly alter numbers in scanned documents · D. Kriesel

Oh dear. You can’t even trust your photocopiers these days. Spot the difference.

The implications are huge. Imagine what happens if the following happens as a result of your copy getting messed up (excerpt from article):

  1. Incorrect invoices
  2. Construction plans with incorrect numbers (as will be shown later in the article) even though they look right
  3. Other incorrect construction plans, for example for bridges (danger of life may be the result!)
  4. Incorrect metering of medicine, even worse, I think.
