Going on a Printer Safari – Hunting Zebra Printers presented at DerbyConVIIIEvolution 2018

by James Edge,

Summary : If you see a label or receipt there is a good chance it was printed by a Zebra printer. Everyone has come in contact with a Zebra printer if you have ever returned a rental car. Every price label you see in your local grocery or department store is printed by a Zebra printer. Warehouses, distribution centers, and even hospitals rely on the ability to print bar-coded labels for tracking purposes. These embedded devices pack a powerful real-time operating system offering an array of services that facilitate communication with the corporate environment. By default these services offer an attack surface into the corporate environment that is alarming. Take a trip on a safari as we go hunting Zebra printers in the wild.
