The Big Hole in Canon PIXMA MG7160 Drivers System
Canon PIXMA MG7160 Drivers has everything that you need. The most popular feature is its connectivity. This part is also the hole that can be used by other people who want to attack.
The Hole in the Connectivity Feature
Michael Jordon, a U.K. security researcher from Context Information Security, found many flaws on this part. The most dangerous thing is you don’t use password and username when you want to update Canon PIXMA firmware.
This leaves a way for other people to get in and mess up with the printer setting. They can even use this hole to run custom mode. When they get the access to this part, they can command the printer to print endlessly. So, it can easily run out the ink and paper.
Play Doom on Canon PIXMA MG7160 Drivers
Jordon even can break the security system in PIXMA and let him play Doom on this printer LED screen. It shows how its flaw can be used to access many things. The most dangerous thing is other people can access your network. So, they can see what kind of document you are printing and even copy it. However, that was in the past. We believe Canon has fixed this problem now.
