+ - Hardcoded Administrator Account Opens Backdoor Access to Samsung Printers->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "A new flaw has been discovered in printers manufactured by Samsung whereby a backdoor in the form of an administrator account would enable attackers to not only take control of the flawed device but, will also allow them to attack other systems in the network. According to a warning on US-CERT the administrator account is hard-coded in the device in the form of a SNMP community string with full read-write access. The backdoor is not only present in Samsung printers but also in Dell printers that have been manufacture by Samsung. The administrator account remains active even if SNMP is disabled from the printer's administration interface."
