Stackoverflowin / sthack

HP Recommended
HP Officejet 7612
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have the same problem that many reported since yesterday. Printer seems to be hacked printing pages with the message: "stackoverflowin/ sthack the hacker god has returned - sthack@protonmail.com - htt" and also "READ --> ------------- stackoverflowin has returned to his glory, your printer is part of"

It is a network printer, connected with cable (WiFi turned off)

The same things have appeared on our OfficeJet 8630. They were printed in the wee hours of the morning. Unsettling.

Sounds like you've got printer ports open in the router: https://nexusconsultancy.co.uk/blog/printer-part-flaming-botnet/

It sounds like your printer may be directly connected to the internet and not behind any sort of firewall.

 

In situations like this you should disable any ports and features on the device that you do not use.

 

Below is a very good document that walks you through recommended settings for an internet connected printer.
