Recently I came across a tool which can inject payloads into a barcode. How can I prevent myself from this kind of attacks?
- The attacker prints vulnerable barcode / sends vulnerable barcode to me
- I scan the vulnerable barcode and the payload attacks my system
- The attacker gains access
Possible preventive scenarios:
- Never scan barcodes - but it's not easy in terms of departmental stores or any company storage areas (where barcode scanning is important)
Apart from the above any possible preventive solutions in order to prevent this type of attacks?
