Xerox vulnerability disclosure legal threat Squashed

Xerox vulnerability disclosure legal threat Squashed

Airbus Security Lab security researcher Raphaël Rigo was due to host a talk at this year’s Infiltrate security conference to discuss critical vulnerabilities discovered in Xerox Multifunction Printers.

A cease-and-desist notice targeting the security researcher who discovered vulnerabilities impacting Xerox printers has been squashed with the removal of a “few extracts of code” in his public disclosure.

However, as previously reported, a notice was published by Infiltrate in February, with less than an hour to go until the talk, informing attendees that the session was cancelled due to legal problems.

“We must cease and desist publication, presentation, and discussions related to the content of Raphaël’s talk,” the notice read.

This week, Rigo told The Daily Swig that the “issues had been resolved” and so the online talk, titled ‘Attacking Xerox Multifunction Printers’, was able to go live yesterday (April 22).

Infiltrate said on April 15 that the cease-and-desist order had “been lifted”.

Disclosure roadblocks
Rigo’s research began in January 2019. However, disruption caused by Covid-19 and the last-minute legal threat meant that the work could only be made public this month.

During the presentation, which included attendees from Xerox, Rigo explained that in order for the talk to go ahead, certain “elements” were removed, including “some passphrase details and a few extracts of code”.

“Although, the core is the same and no information I consider important was suppressed,” the researcher added.
