Samsung Printers Built With Admin Backdoors

Postby Zero-Fear » Wed Nov 28, 2012 7:53 pm

"Some Samsung printers, including models the Korean company made for Dell, have a backdoor administrator account coded into their firmware, says US CERT.

The brief vulnerability notice does not mention which models have the account, but does say “The vendor has stated that models released after October 31, 2012 are not affected by this vulnerability.” Which will be welcome relief for those who acquired a printer in the last month."

You'd be amazed at the number of pwnable printers... At school we'd dump our Warez onto them, they also have a fair amount of storage on the bigger models, default passwords & pwnable firmware. You can even modify what they display on the screen...
