A security researcher Michael Jordon hacked a Wireless Canon Pixma Printer to run the classic eletronic game Doom. It took four months to get the game running on the hardware.
He said he had undertaken the project to demonstrate the security problems surrounding devices that would form the “internet of things”.
Canon said it planned to fix the loopholes on future printers to make them harder to subvert and make sure that nobody tries to install Doom on a printer again.
Jordon said the problem is in the remote access of the printer for check the printer status. The interface doesn’t have a username or a password, so anyone can access the printer status. While Jordon was checking the printer, he broken the cryptography and installed his own firmware with the game.
