Test ID:
Title:HP LaserJet direct print
It is possible to connect
directly on this port, and it is very likely
that it is possible to make the printer print
the data we will sent to it, thus overriding
lpd authority.

This is a threat, because an attacker may connect
to this printer, force it to print pages of
garbage, and make it run out of paper. If
this printer is used relied on to print
security logs, then this will be a problem.

Solution : filter incoming traffic to this port.

Risk factor : Low
