15 Mar 2024

Ricoh understands the importance of security and is committed to managing its products and services with the most advanced security technologies possible for its customers worldwide. 

As a distributor of PaperCut software, we would like to advise that PaperCut have released the latest security focused release of Papercut MF (23.0.7). The issues addressed in this release are part of Papercut’s ongoing security uplift program which involves internal reviews and penetration testing with external parties.

Papercut recommends all organisations plan an upgrade to this release, however, organisations with PaperCut NG/MF servers that are accessible from the Internet (e.g. open ports), or have untrusted actors within the network (e.g. a large University) are strongly advised to prioritize this upgrade. 

What are the identified vulnerabilities?

Information on the identified vulnerabilities can be found on the PaperCut website.
