HP 4050 Display Hacked
Posted on 2006-07-19
I have 2 HP 4050 printers networked on our domain that both seem to have been hacked into.
All of a sudden one says "So Sleepy" in the display (where it usually displays "ready") and the other has "Deposit .025".
I logged into the jetdirect admin page using the assigned IP and can find nothing there that allows me to change the display settings, so I am not sure how these changes came about.
I have since placed security passwords on the jetdirect cards to prevent future settings, but I cannot figure how this happened and also how to change it so that it will not continue to display these statements.
