Multiple vulnerabilities were found for certain Office / Small Office Multifunction Printers, Laser Printers and Inkjet Printers.
These vulnerabilities indicate the possibility that if a product is connected directly to the Internet without using a router (wired or Wi-Fi), an unauthenticated remote attacker via the Internet may be able to execute arbitrary code and/or may be able to target the product in a Denial-of Service (DoS) attack. An attacker may also be able to install arbitrary files due to improper authentication of RemoteUI.
