HP's JetDirect Software Makes Networked Printers Vulnerable

HP's JetDirect Software Makes Networked Printers Vulnerable
Vulnerabilities in Hewlett-Packard's (HP's) JetDirect software could allow attackers to circumvent biometric and other security protections to access partially printed documents and crash all machines running the vulnerable software that are connected to the network. The software is used in internal, external, and embedded print servers from many manufacturers, not just HP. It is designed to manage print requests made through networks.

Stanford Medical Facility Suffers Another Data Security Breach
The Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford University has notified 57,000 patients that their personal information was compromised after an unencrypted laptop containing the data was stolen from a doctor's car. The theft occurred on January 9, 2013, and was reported to the hospital the following day. The incident is the fourth data security breach involving a Stanford medical facility since January 2010.
