Hack the Printer! Hack the Printer!

Talk by Toby (he/him) 👪

Saturday from 2:50 PM - 3:20 PM in Stage B

We all struggle with getting a printer to actually print something, but the more important issue is how can you play the 1995 classic Hackers on their tiny screen? We found a vulnerability on a common office printer that allowed us to run our own code on the device. I'll talk about the whole hacking process, from getting access to the printer software, finding and exploiting a vulnerability, and then how we took that to its logical rollerskating 90s conclusion. I'll include some juicy technical bits of course but hope to make this talk accessible and interesting for everyone.
