Security concerns for Internet connected 3D printers

Recommended Posts

According to an article published on the Sophos Naked Security Blog, thousands of Internet connected 3D printers are at risk of remote exploitation unless they are properly secured. Since this section of the LW.N deals with these printers, I recommend that any of you with remote access enabled should read this article. It may or may not pertain to your existing printer, or software, but knowing about the threat will be beneficial. I strongly believe that all IoT devices need better security out of the box.

Interesting. The obvious solution, of course, is don't connect the printer to the internet. I can't really see the point in connecting a home 3D printer to the 'net, I would much rather be there to keep an eye on it when it's running. And when I'm not using it it's turned off.
