Type: Scam websites

Affected: Owners of Canon printers encountering problems with aftermarket ink that produces the error code B203 are directed to multiple scam websites offering to fix this issue.

Scam: Users that call the support number have their computers taken over by remote access (logmein) and are advised that the error can be fixed for a fee and also that the antivirus being used is no good and you should use theirs (which is costly and unnecessary).
