Most of us have heard of Google hacks, right? Nothing that spectacular there. How about using Google to hack a copier? Ah, bet you did not see that one coming, did ya? Apparently it is frightenly easy to do, take a look for yourself.
Using Google hacks — requests typed into the search engine that bring up cached information on networks — hackers are discovering and using login details for networked photocopiers so they can watch what is being copied.
“You don’t have to be a genius to do this,” said Jason Hart, security director at Whitehat UK. “You can see what people are photocopying on your monitor. You just have to search for online devices on Google.”
