Hacking network printers

jet direct

[Irongeek] has assembled a good starting point for hacking network printers. It starts with a discussion of stock passwords and how to administrate printers using telnet. Next is finding printers using NMAP. You can actually use the JetDirect boxes as idle scan zombies to scan other systems without exposing yourself.

The ability to capture and replay print jobs really demonstrates how insecure network printing is.

[Irongeek] is also a great source for making the most of your Zaurus and has video demos of other hacking topics.

Congratulations to [Markie] for making it onto BoingBoing and MAKE with his Hack-A-Day iPod sock. I can Digg it. We know he’s just trying to shake the moniker of “cute bunny photographer“.

Episode 002 of NerdTV is available now, even though they haven’t updated the homepage. Fbz got a little impatient and decided to dig for it. UPDATE: It’s been officially released.

[Jon] downplayed his cd dividers when he sent in the link, but I think they look pretty appealing.

You don’t need a serial number to get a new Playstation AC cord from the recall. [Ozmotear]

[Wiltj] knows that no one will want to steal his Bazooka sub knockoff.

German gallery of UAVS [thanks dad]

[Seth fogie] wrote this roundup of PSP emulators and ISOs. This is actually one of the few reasons I’d buy a PSP since it has the correct number of buttons to emulate a SNES, unlike the GBA.

[sulk] modified his Playgear PSP case so he could use it with USB.

[sega01] saw our spudgun victim and decided to show some pictures from his laptop+fireworks period. What have you guys got against Toshibas? I just take my stuff to hazmat like a good citizen. I wouldn’t have if I had known I’d be hired here a week later.

[Jake] is going to hell for this link.

If you missed it in the comments [dick] sent in his friend’s April fools printer hack.

[jaa] modified his T610 cameraphone for IR.

Google recently rolled out Blog search. We’ve got a Google hack category now; if you come up with something clever/abusive send it in. Read the FAQ to get started.

I hope you enjoyed all of the linkage.
