Printers have become a regular household device. Printer owners or IT administrators do not see
them always as fully equipped network computers. Printers sitting in one corner of the office or
house and quietly going about the business of copying, printing, scanning & faxing might not seem
to pose any real security threat. But hackers increasingly find them very attractive for malicious
intents. So like any other networked device, if not properly managed, they can expose sensitive
campus or personal data to unauthorized access and misuse.
