Here at EBI, we are all about information security. You have to be when you handle people’s most sensitive data. While your company might not manage as much delicate information as we do, a hacker gaining access to your records or work product could still be devastating.
An article on BleeepingComputer.com revealed that a hacker, who calls himself Stackoverflowin, exposed a serious hole in IT security. The hacker claims to have infiltrated more than 150,000 printers that were left exposed online. That means they did not have a firewall or other security settings enabled. Stackoverflowin claims he only had the best of intentions. He wanted to show companies the risk they are taking by not protecting this seemingly innocent piece of equipment.
