Fax Exploit Discovered on HP Fax Machines – Faxploit

By | News & Press | No Comments

Fax Exploit Discovered on HP Fax Machines – Faxploit

The fax exploit discovered on HP fax machines – Faxploit, is specific to HP fax devices only. A well known security research group did successfully compromised an HP Multi-Function fax machine by taking it apart and reverse engineering certain HP specific code. While their research was undoubtedly eye-opening, similar headlines and statements claiming that the “T.30 protocol itself has been compromised” are categorically false; a bit of drama designed to make headlines. 

More specifically, the researches were clearly able to demonstrate the exploit by exposing a weakness/flaw in software developed internally at HP, rendering it vulnerable when handling color/JPEG faxes. If you own HP equipment in your organization, please be sure to apply security patches available from HP immediately. 

This type of attack is a reminder that much of today’s office equipment attached to our networks are indeed computing devices, capable of causing potential harm and disruption to your business if not managed properly. Whether it’s a networked thermostat, printer device or music player in our home, both businesses and individual users of such products should always be mindful of security issues and updates whenever possible. 

As for etherFAX, rest assured that your devices and connected systems are completely safe within the etherFAX Network. The etherFAX network and systems are not vulnerable to such an attack of this nature and further isolates our customers from such nefarious activity. It’s just one more reason why using etherFAX is a wise choice. 

Dialogic has made an official statement about this misleading research as well. You can read their response here: http://blog.dialogic.com/blog/fax-and-the-recent-scare-about-security

New Support Policy Changes From RightFax®.

RightFax® Support Contracts renew every year. It is very important that you are aware of the latest changes in policies that affect your renewal.

RightFax® has made certain changes to RightFax® Support Renewals that you must be made aware of. These policies are effective immediately. Here is what you NEED TO KNOW:

Decommission Policy: If there are any supported components of your current RightFax® environment (modules, channels, hardware, etc.) that you NO LONGER plan to use and/or support, you must ‘decommission’ those products at least 90 days before your contract expiration date. If these products are not decommissioned at least 90 days prior to your contract expiring, you will be charged for another full year of support on these products. Please contact Ingenium as soon as you wish to decommission products so we can help you.

Late Fees: It is critical that you renew your support contract on time. RightFax® imposes a 3% late-penalty (of the total cost of your renewal) that begins the day after a Support Contract expires, and an additional 3% every 30 days a contract remains expired. Please renew your contract with before it expires to avoid these costly penalties!

You can avoid costly penalties by taking a few proactive steps now. You can count on Ingenium to help you renew your support agreement prior to the expiration date. DO NOT WAIT when needing to decommission a product or renewing your support. We will work with you to make this process as smooth as possible.

How to Report a Spam Fax

By | News & Press | No Comments

Not many things are more frustrating to me than to be waiting on a real important fax and to end up with a fabulous vacation offer with airfare for only 99.00. Yes, I’m talking about Spam Fax or Junk Fax. But how did you end up on this list to begin with? How do you make them stop sending these unwanted faxes to you? Well, one might say lets queue up about 100,000 faxes and blast the spam faxer away for a couple days. I know, that sounds like a lot of fun but its really not a practical solution. Your best bet is to check the bottom of the fax for removal instructions and follow them. Another formal alternative would be to file an official complaint with the FCC. The formal Junk Fax Complaint process is really easy and you can do it all online by starting with the complaint from on the FCC website located here.
