    I bet 90% of all small businesses still have no real clue data security and about the amount of data their printers, cash registers,.. still contain.

    By that reasoning if the restaurant supply reclamation company instead found equipment contaminated with bacteria, and sold the equipment, and people got sick and died from it, they likewise wouldn't have any responsibility. Equipment that poses a threat to people because it spreads private data is not really all that different from equipment that poses a threat because it spreads disease.

    (Which is not to say that it's legally the same, of course.)

Any program which runs right is obsolete.
