ETERNALBLUE is an SMB exploit not Samba, and patched in Samba in 2017.
I'm not aware of any current documented exploits for Samba that are
unpatched -- but then I wouldn't be would I?
I wouldn't worry about any of them anyway on a secured and continuously
updated network. Nothing protects against 0-day, but the laws of random
are on our side as to being the first infected. I hope.
In your case it's moot anyway, Jetdirect=/= SMB
Couldn't you just get a more modern printer? Jetdirect was developed in
1991, it's always been a PITA and I'm glad to see the backside of it...
It's nice to re-use stuff but I've given in, at 68 my time is limited :)
Wifi printers are available for less than the cost of an ink set
Cheers. Best of luck with it...
