Abstract or Summary:
Specific embedded devices are targeted by criminals in order to gain access or utilize for further attacks. Modems for example are attacked to change DNS-servers for advertising or infecting systems. This may be done through brute-forcing admin passwords on these devices. Printers contain passwords which may be stolen through attacks on these systems and used for attacking other network devices (e.g. servers). In this talk I will show and explain examples of these attacks. Some common attacks may also be utilized for password-testing - dictionary generating.
