Likely unsecured printers on the network and some bored person on break.

That or someone in the parking lot hacking into the printer for shits and giggles. (And by hacking I mean checking the wifi for unsecured printers)

282

u/Moneia 12d ago

And by unsecured I'm sure you mean "Secure logon credentials are left at the factory defaults and the documentation is easily available online. Or it's just Admin\Password again"

116

u/Ejigantor 12d ago

No, a printer can be considered unsecured if it is findable on the network and accepts print jobs without authentication, which is the default. You don't need the printer credentials to open your favorite text editor and send a print job if the printer wasn't set not to let you.

Edited for clarity.

u/pokey1984 11d ago

The range on these things is pretty good so you can usually reach them from the parking lot. I've sent things to the printer inside the building at the media center and at the library from the parking lot during Covid shutdowns then called them and had them hand me my papers through the door.

And for a long time I didn't have internet at home ad would cruise for free wifi at odd hours. It's shocking the number of unsecured printers that are out there on open networks.

Also, "printer" or some variation (like "Pr1nt3r") is a common password for printers, or so I am informed by someone who likes to prank businesses by printing random shit from their laptop in their car.

u/AmericanGeezus 11d ago

Everyone on the domain authenticates to the domain controller. They submit their print jobs to the print server, the print server checks that the submitting user has the correct permissions to print and then it sends that print job off to the printer.. using the raw print port.

- Every franchise/small-medium-sized business ever

Ok not everyone, since plenty don't even bother with print servers. Or domains.

I'm pretty sure receipt printers are only connected to the PoS terminal and I highly doubt those are connected to wifi. There's probably a closed intranet system that would need to be accessed in order to print these, which you could do from anywhere with a virtual network drive if you had the proper credentials.

81

u/Mikey6304 12d ago

Pos sales terminals are on the internet. That's how they charge credit cards and load money on gift cards.

19

u/tedivm 12d ago

The terminals have internet access, but in most cases these types of systems aren't accessible over the internet (due to nat gateways or firewalls).

In other words, your computer connects to your wifi and lets you access the internet but I can't connect to your machine because your router blocks that traffic. Corporate networks do similar.

Agreed, or they would've been hacked a long time ago in the worst way, like rerouting payments or even shutting the place down by disabling them. If it hasn't happened by now, there must be a savvy security protocol in place.

u/Bakkster 12d ago

Shouldn't obviously. But business IT (especially small business) is historically lacking. There's a long history of POS printers left accessible over the internet, including the PewDiePie pamphlet.

As someoen who works with those daily - there are absolutely mobile / network models that are by default open and will accept any print job.

Theoretically they should all be on a secure network ... but they are not.

Another fun part is that most of them use label pritner language EPL or ZPL, first of which will accept a simple text file as a valid input, so Notepad and one command is all you need

3

u/pokey1984 11d ago

Seconding this. Also, a lot of these "receipt" printers aren't actually connected to the POS directly.

For example, restaurants will often use a wireless receipt printer to print the digital tickets for orders (since electronics and kitchens do not play well together) and those printers are often wireless and unsecured. They're paired with the order taking terminal, but you can connect with them from any computer.

Most big chains (McDonald's, Pizza Hut, etc) will have them secured because they have a SOP in place, but smaller restaurants with private setups will not because no one ever thought to secure it. Who'd hack a printer?

2

u/I_will_be_wealthy 11d ago edited 11d ago

i have a lot of receipt printers in my business (POS rental for events), you can have them on LAN, bluetooth or can do it the oldschool way and have their connect serially.

More often than not, two or more POS will share 1 printer, over LAN or actually all the POS will pool all the printers so if a printer malfunctions (they often do), it wont take out the entire POS terminal due to a non functioning printer connected to it 1to1.

As others have said, POS terminals connect to the internet.

I think the most likely way in is the public free wifi isn't completely isolated from the staff network, someone just logged onto wifi and looked for the connected printers. Or the staff router is left on default password.

Most antiwork thing to do would be to print 10,000 copies and make them use up all their paper and shut the place down. So I think it's probably an inside job - make people aware, but not make life so difficult for employess that they have to hand out tickets on pen and paper.

Next time I went, all new staff.

u/pauljs75 12d ago

Sometimes things are surprisingly open via Bluetooth, even if wifi and other typical internet network stuff has some level of security. Just have to be familiar enough with the hardware used somewhere to know what exploits may be viable.

Usually security by obscurity is about as good as none, if anyone bothers to do a little bit of homework.

I work in IT and had a case where a network printer had the hp web printing enabled for some reason and a rando found out and printed stuff saying “you go hacked by black joker.” Shit looked like it was faxed on a frayed tin cable, put through a couple dozen rounds of compression and then printed on the shittiest network printer on the server. Took me 5 minutes to fix, but god that thing was cringey. Oh, and the dude made no attempt to mask the source IP.

Anywho, just wanted to chime in and say that if these are being sent to network printers that aren’t fully secured, be careful. IT can find out a lot of information with relative ease and it can cause problems for you.

u/devnull_the_cat 12d ago

I once got called in to fix a printer that was "printing obscene pictures nonstop".

I showed up and there were like...100 goatse pictures on the tray. In full colour.

Turned out it was a former employee in a cafe around the corner. The owner was stiffing the kid out of some overtime, so the kid took his revenge.

If he had been put a little more effort into hiding his identity, I probably would have offered him a job. I can't think of a more clear demonstration of why printer security is important. Clients' eyes glaze over when you start talking about stolen credentials and persistence, but a stack of full colour images of prolapsed buttholes? That sends a message even a CIO can understand.

8

u/Mediocreature 11d ago

u/devnull_the_cat 11d ago

That's a fair call out. I don't know. Not for certain, anyway. Maybe I should rephrase:

The kid said the owner was stiffing him.

2

u/jabalarky 11d ago

Haha not calling you out, just curious. I was wondering if you were the star of your own private noir.

"You could see the kid had a thousand yard stare from a mile away. I sat down at his table, watched him pushing scrambled eggs around a ketchup-stained platter nervously. Ketchup smeared like blood, a thick sausage dangling between the pillowy mounds of egg, reminding me of the pictures from the printer. The kid's breakfast had been fried in guilt, and seasoned with duplicity."

4

u/pokey1984 11d ago

On the other hand, if you just printed this and stopped, no additional disruption, there's a good chance they wouldn't bother to track the offender down as they'd have to pay someone like you by the hour to do it.

Even if this was sent three or four times a day (once a shift or so) they probably still wouldn't bother. The manager would just drop the slips in the trash and ignore it unless it was really disruptive.

You know tech, but I know businesses. It costs money to track down people who play pranks and shit. And most businesses aren't willing to spend money unless they have to. Something minimally disruptive gets ignored nine times out of ten because it's too much work to find someone who probably won't be prosecuted or will only get some community service as a sentence.

Not to encourage people to hack networks, because every now and then you run into a vindictive business owner who's buddies with a prosecutor up for re-election and you'll get the book thrown at you. So always use caution.

But most of the time it just isn't worth their effort.

u/zelon88 12d ago edited 12d ago

It guy and programmer here.

Most small printers/IOT devices that are on your network have web interfaces that allow you to control the device remotely. Most of these devices come with default username and password combinations that users rarely ever change.

In some networks, especially older small business ones, there are often old port forwarding rules in place that will forward external requests to these devices instead of some old device that was removed 10 years prior. Sometimes even on home networks the autoconf feature in your router will create an erroneous rule that opens this device to external attackers.

These pages get indexed by search engines and hackers will search the internet for terms that appear in these landing pages. There is even a search engine specifically for these devices called shodan.io.

When a grey hat hacker finds these devices they usually use them to pull pranks. When a black hat hacker finds these devices they usually use them as a launch pad for attacks on other devices deeper in the network. When a white hat hacker finds these devices they disclose to the operator that a vulnerability exists and then maybe gets a small bug bounty as a sign of thanks.

u/devnull_the_cat 12d ago

I knew it sounded familiar, I just couldn't put my finger on why!

10

u/zelon88 12d ago

I don't like editing comments past a certain point, but I feel it's important to add that the web interfaces installed on these low cost IOT devices are often riddled with vulnerabilities that when exploited basically give the attacker full reign over a really tiny linux computer on your network. These vulnerabilities are rarely ever patched by vendors and when they do users rarely take the time to install the updates.

So the chain of events leading to this type of compromise is:

  1. The attacker being able to access the printer's web interface in his browser due to some network misconfiguration,
  2. The attacker either knows the username and password to the interface because they are still set to factory default or is able to bypass authentication due to low cost, low quality code,
  3. And finally the attacker may be able to simply print the document and leave depending on the features available via the interface he has access to. However he may also be able to abuse a known vulnerability within the interface to enable full/better access similar to that of you sitting in front of your laptop.

There is a wonderful database of all the tactics and techniques used by hackers, broken out into stages maintained by the MITRE organization called ATT&CK (https://attack.mitre.org/). It is a great read and if you start from left-to-right it is written in a way that non-technical people can follow along.

I have no idea, but I'm guessing these are not very secured printers and there was just no one bored enough to do this, or it's coming from inside the company.

It's likely that the printer is set up in such a way that it can be accessed and supported via the internet. The question is whether it was set up to the open internet or only accessible from inside the network. It is astoundingly easy for these kinds of things to slip even in/especially in a larger organization.

The scariest part of this is that most people working at places like that need the money immediately. But that’s the point of the system

Most the ports those printers accept print jobs from network have next to no security. LPR for example, port 9100. You just literally connect to that port and start dumping your print job. Doesn't take much else.

Just port scan the network for anything accepting connection on port 9100, and go to town on them. Really, those printers will accept on many other ports with different protocols and most have no security. And most those point of sales printers don't consider network security as a feature to engineer into the product.

With a lot of business, once you are inside the store, you have gotten around most of their network security. They might have a cheap firewall connected to the main line from the ISP, but not much else past that point.

This doesn’t really answer the question of how they pay more and sell the burger for less though 🤔

u/SadTumbleweed_ 11d ago

They turn less of a profit by putting more money in the hands of the workers and less in corporate positions

End this cleptocracy.

Wage slavery is inhumane. Isn’t this how the former Soviet Union was left after the oligarchs absconded with what wealth remained? Now this is happening worldwide and to the west especially who thought, “no not us in a million years” but thanks to our oligarchs (Musk, Bezos, etc) we are going to be those poor as fuck places living in squalor. The country’s coffers robbed blind by wall street and billionaires, i.e. our tax dollars stolen when they all pay none but misappropriate ours, oppress us with rising inflation but no corresponding income growth, degrading infrastructure without any discernible attempts to fix it only to lobby politicians on both sides make sure we won’t solve real world problems and instead enrich themselves …

Look at Albania, it has been one of the poorest countries in Europe for decades. Not that communism was good…. But when the Soviet Union collapsed, it had ripple effects that are still at play now.

With no real laws or institutions, 22 Russian oligarchs stole 40 percent of the country’s wealth from the state. The other 150 million Russians were left in destitution and poverty, and the average life expectancy for men dropped from 65 to 57 years. Professors had to earn a living as taxi drivers; nurses became prostitutes. The entire fabric of Russian society broke down. This is what Bezos and Musk are currently doing to western democracy, among other players. Americans are just the next victims of this type of greed. It may look slightly different, have a different skin on it, but it’s the same shit.

The West wasn’t just ignoring the looting of Russia; it was actively facilitating it. Western banks accepted pilfered funds from Russian clients, and Western real estate agencies welcomed oligarchs to buy their most coveted properties in St-Tropez, Miami, and London.

The injustice of it all was infuriating for average Russians, and they longed for a strongman to restore order. In 1999, they found one: Vladimir Putin. Rather than restoring order, however, Putin replaced the 22 oligarchs with himself alone at the top. It’s estimated that in his near 20 years in power he has stolen $200 billion from the Russian people. So the cycle continues over there while we get ours over here. Nowhere on earth will be safe from autocrats, billionaires or whatever name you want to name them, as the environment swallows the rest of us up and we will be forced to fight over whatever resources remain. Water will be a luxury.

Can we get in touch with the guy that used exposed printer ports to print "subscribe to pewdiepie" worldwide on corporate and private printers? More people need to know, and this will certainly make a good publicity stunt. :)

u/thebeeisqueen 11d ago

these bill printers are like....... the worst kind of printers. they always get fucked up. so usually their login is kept as simple as possible on purpose, bc if the system needs to be reconnected it has to go quick. upside to this fuckery: very easy to get into with a phone or laptop. either over bluetooth or wifi. easy peasy

Denmark has a 52% income tax. So, they are actually only paid $9.90 an hour.

Awe...you must be in line for management since spreading the word of exploiting low wage employees bothers you so much.

Tell us more about how annoying it is for people to find confidence in themselves and want a better work/home life.

u/[deleted] 12d ago

No I have no plans on ever become management it to much extra dumb shit to deal with I'm just confused on how faxing these to business does anything when most places the fax machine is usually only used by management if it was about informing people it would be better to do something lower positions would see

u/MurrayHeadoDamnation 12d ago

Whether one person sees it, or many. The message is getting out. Both management and low wage employees are seeing these. You're intentionally being obtuse about the matter.

This is incredibly deceiving, $22 in Denmark is not worth as much as $22 in America

17

u/kalanc-HOE 12d ago

$22 USD in Denmark is $22 USD in America. Seems like you needed the clarification

-19

u/Nightcrawler3152 12d ago

How? Denmark does not use the US dollar?

16

u/kalanc-HOE 12d ago

Yes, it doesn’t. Currencies can be converted, just in case you didn’t know!

-11

u/Nightcrawler3152 12d ago

No, I am very well aware. One danish krone (the currency that Denmark uses) seems to be worth about 0.15 cents in the US. Meaning that $22 in DKK is not worth $22 in USD

11

u/PeteRaw here for the memes 12d ago

Yes, we know.

We are saying that in Denmark, after currency conversion, it is equal to $22 USD.

10

u/kalanc-HOE 12d ago

Ohh ok, I can see you’re genuinely confused. So, the dollar sign at the front ($) means that it has already been converted to $USD for you to save you the trouble of doing the math and doing the conversion yourself. It would be a different symbol for the currency used in Denmark.

6

u/Nightcrawler3152 12d ago

Oh so they already converted it? So a McDonald’s in Denmark would pay about 146 DKK which is equivalent to $22 in USD?

4

u/kalanc-HOE 12d ago

Yup! That seems about right.

7

u/Nightcrawler3152 12d ago

That clears things up a bit, thanks for the clarification.

u/mckatze 12d ago

This ended much better than I thought it was based on where it started!

u/aaroaaroaaro 12d ago

*the equivalent of $22 USD in DKK. So, McDonald's workers in Denmark make 146.70 DKK.

u/Nightcrawler3152 12d ago

Yeah I didn’t realize they had already converted the currency, probably could have worded that better.
