PaperCut security vulnerabilities under active attack – vendor urges customers to patch


We’ll be honest, and admit that we hadn’t heard of the printer management software PaperCut until this week.

In fact, the first time we heard the name was in the context of cybercriminality and malware attacks, and we naively assumed that “PaperCut” was what we like to call a BWAIN.

A BWAIN is our satirical term for any Bug With An Impressive (and media-savvy) Name, like Heartbleed or Shellshock back in the day, and we thought that this one referred to a vulnerability or an exploit of some sort.
