the factory denied and denied that their wasn't any malware issued in their driver disks. But SOMETHING was probing my network, and my Safe@Office blocked it fortunately.
I think it was a bot looking for weaknesses to recon the LAN and send information to the bot net. However the information never got out, and I solved it by uninstalling the driver and getting a new one straight from the Brother support site. Problem solved - no malware in the CD, huh? Then how come that solved it!!!
