Vulnerabilities in HP LaserJet and other network printers could expose your data and set your business ablaze
Excuse the sensational title, but it may not be too far from the truth.
There is an article over on ComputerWorld.com that reads, “HP LaserJet Printers vulnerable to attacks, researchers warn“… (opens in a new window).
Our in-house expert, Greg Varner, believes that if an attacker could exploit the device to the point of causing it to brown paper in the fuser, it would not be overly difficult to disable the safety mechanisms discussed in the article that protects this from happening.
Without question this does give us cause to pause and think about these connected devices.
