internal SPAM coming from the officejet printer!

Okay, our officejet printer has an email associated with it, and it seems to be generating spam from that email address...how the *&$% is that possible?  our firewall is locked down pretty tight.

How are you seeing that?  Is it NDR's from other mail servers?

Thank you Dave,

The email is being sent from our officejet printer to users within our own organization that didn't request it.  It looks like it's infected email (can tell by the subject, who it's from etc.)

Open the spam email received and check the message headers. It would give you the source IP address from where the email is generated. Atleast we would be able to know from where the emails are coming through. Below is the link to help in extracting the headers of the email.


I hope that would help.
