Fax machines, which are part of many all-in-one printers, can be compromised over the telephone line and used to attack Windows PCs on the networks to which they are attached, researchers from security firm Check Point say.

The exploit was demonstrated on Sunday in a talk titled “what the Fax?” at the DEFCON security summit held in Las Vegas. A detailed technical explanation of the methods used is available here.
