Anycubic 3D printers hacked in bold attempt to inform owners of security hole | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

According to users of the subreddit for Anycubic 3D printers, a very significant exploit has been uncovered by hackers — though fortunately, they only seem to be using it to leave a message drawing attention to the issue. As noted by Bleeping Computer, users are being pointed toward a readme file on the display of their 3D printer that alerts them of the security issue and advises them to disconnect it from the Internet until a patch is released that actually fixes the problem.

Unfortunately, it seems like this has been an issue for quite some time. According to a forum post cited by BC on the matter, users “have attempted to communicate with Anycubic regarding two critical security vulnerabilities we identified, in particular one can be found catastrophic if found by a malicious (party). Despite our efforts over the past two months, we have not received a single response.”
