Multifunction printer hacking
by Berislav Kucan - Monday, 12 March 2012.
A great number of multifunction printers of have the ability to integrate within a corporation's business environment and connect to its email systems, its file systems, its FTP servers and a number of other resources. In order to be able to do that, these devices have to contain credentials needed to authenticate themselves to these resources.

Unfortunately, this information can also be extracted by attackers and be misused by them to gain a foothold into the internal network.

In this podcast, Deral Heiland talks about the types of attacks that can be mounted against multifunction printers and shares best security practices and mitigation techniques that will make the attackers' job a lot harder.

He also presents Praeda, a tool designed to gather information from web interfaces on printers (and other embedded devices), which allows penetration testers to search for vulnerabilities that attackers can take advantage of.
