New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.3
SynopsisThe remote printer has a backdoor administrator account.
DescriptionThe remote host appears to be a Samsung printer, or a Dell printer manufactured by Samsung. It has a hard-coded SNMP read-write community string that allows access even when SNMP has been disabled in the printer management utility. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can exploit this to take control of the printer.
SolutionTo secure the printer, do one or more of the following :
- Limit access to the affected SNMP service using a secure firewall / router.
- Disable SNMPv1/v2 on the printer and instead use the secure SNMPv3 mode.
- Apply an optional firmware update. Contact the device's vendor for more information.
