Vulnerabilities exist that, if exploited, could allow remote attackers to insert arbitrary code into the device. This could occur with a specifically crafted Postscript or firmware job submitted to the device. If successful, an attacker could make unauthorized changes to the system configuration; however, customer and user passwords are not exposed.
As part of Xerox’s on-going efforts to protect customers, the ability to accept these specially crafted jobs can be disabled for the affected products listed in the bulletin. Links for the software needed are contained inside the bulletin.
