These printer's configuration is wide open. Attackers can change just about any value through this control panel. Take it from FX, printers can be dangerous too! Besides, a POP3 server, username and password can be entered into these things! =)

2004-07-17 05:20:07 (murfie): That's still 4 too many though..

About the passwords, there may be a default pair (check the userguides for that, i don't know) or they may be brute forced by an attacker.
