|Public Release Date:||20 May 2019|
Some Lexmark printers contain a denial of service vulnerability in their SNMP service. This vulnerability can be exploited to crash the device.
A specially crafted request to the SNMP service will cause a vulnerable device to crash. If the “General Settings”->Error Recovery” setting is set to “Auto Reboot” (the default) then the device will automatically reboot until the “Max Auto Reboots” limit is reached.
|CVSSv3 Base Score||7.5||(AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)|
CVSSv3 scores are calculated in accordance with CVSS version 3.0 (https://www.first.org/cvss/user-guide)
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability can lead to a denial of service on the affected device by causing it to crash.
To determine a devices firmware level, select the “Settings”->“Reports”->”Menu Setting Page” menu item from the operator panel. If the firmware level listed under “Device Information” matches any level under “Affected Releases”, then upgrade to a “Fixed Release”.
Obtaining Updated Software
To obtain firmware that resolves this issue or if you have special code, please contact Lexmark’s Technical Support Center at http://support.lexmark.com to find your local support center.
Disabling the SNMP service on the device or disabling access to TCP port 161 blocks the ability to exploit this vulnerability.
