Samsung has provided the following statement:
Samsung is aware of and has resolved the security issue affecting Samsung network printers and multifunction devices. The issue affects devices only when SNMP is enabled, and is resolved by disabling SNMP.
We take all matters of security very seriously and we are not aware of any customers who have been affected by this vulnerability. Samsung is committed to releasing updated firmware for all current models by November 30, with all other models receiving an update by the end of the year. However, for customers that are concerned, we encourage them to disable SNMPv1,2 or use the secure SNMPv3 mode until the firmware updates are made.
For further information, customers may contact Samsung customer service at 1-866-SAM4BIZ for business customers or 1-800-SAMSUNG for consumers.
Those phone numbers aren't much help if you're outside the US. Samsung appears to have a single customer service number in Australia: 1300 362 603.
The CERT vulnerability note says the problem revolves around "a hardcoded SNMP full read-write community string that remains active even when SNMP is disabled in the printer management utility" while Samsung says "The issue affects devices only when SNMP is enabled, and is resolved by disabling SNMP."
Security experts often recommend disabling any functions that are not required in order to reduce the attack surface - if a function is not available, an attacker will be unable to exploit its vulnerabilities.
When we checked the support pages for a few current Samsung network printers this morning, we found no mention of the issue or the firmware updates - presumably they will be there by tomorrow, November 30.
