re: Samsung Printers Have Hidden Security Risk
"contain a hardcoded SNMP full read-write community string that remains active even when SNMP is disabled in the printer management utility." In other words, the printers have a hardcoded account in their firmware that can't be disabled by users. SNMP"

and

"The issue affects devices only when SNMP is enabled, and is resolved by disabling SNMP," said Samsung spokesman Reuben Staines via email."

So? Which is it? Samsung says that if you disable SNMP, the exploit is invalid....the exploit says that even *IF* SNMP is turned off, the exploit is still valid!
This is conflicting information that makes this article confusing....why didn't the writer of this article hold Reuben's feet to the fire for making this statement? I mean, if he made this statement in error, this shows a complete lack of understanding by Samsung and shows that their SAFE endevour is nothing more than advertising hype.
