Description

All the Toshiba printers contain a shell script using the same hardcoded key to encrypt logs. An attacker can decrypt the encrypted files using the hardcoded key. This vulnerability can be executed in combination with other vulnerabilities and difficult to execute alone. So, the CVSS score for this vulnerability alone is lower than the score listed in the Base Score of this vulnerability.

How can this vulnerability be part of an attack tree?

This vulnerability can be part of an attack tree by being used as a stepping stone in a multi-stage attack. Since the vulnerability allows an attacker to decrypt encrypted files using a hardcoded key, it can be leveraged to gain access to sensitive information stored in those files. For example, an attacker could use this vulnerability to access login credentials or other sensitive data stored in encrypted logs on Toshiba printers. Once the attacker has this information, they could then use it to escalate their attack by gaining unauthorized access to other systems or networks within the organization. By combining this vulnerability with other vulnerabilities or attack techniques, the attacker can increase the overall impact of their attack. This could include using the decrypted information to launch further attacks, exfiltrate sensitive data, or disrupt operations. Overall, this vulnerability may have a lower CVSS score when considered alone, but when incorporated into a larger attack tree, it can significantly increase the risk and impact of a cyber attack.
