A security researcher has found nearly 700 Brother printers left exposed online, allowing access to the password reset function to anyone who knows what to look for.
A wide range of Brother printer models, such as DCP-9020CDW, MFC-9340CDW, MFC-L2700DW, or MFC-J2510, just to name a few.
One of the cause of some of these exposures is Brother shipped the printers with no admin password. Most people most likely connected the printers to their networks without realizing the admin panel was present and wide open to connections. These printers are now easy discoverable via search engines like Shodan.
