22.1.1

Build 66714
Print Provider version 109.27.0.6568
Print Deploy server version 1.7.2336
08 Jun, 2023

New Features:

Introduced a new security hardening feature designed to uplift default security and provide additional layers of protection. We’ve added configuration and new defaults to make it hard for attackers to initiate a chained attack.

This includes a new security.properties file to separate the configuration of some components from the web administration interface. These include:

  • Print Scripting and Device Scripting settings, such as the ability to run executables and unsafe code from scripts
  • Explicit granting of permission to run external executables such as those used with custom authentication providers and other plugins

For the vast majority of customers, no action will be required after the upgrade. Please see the PaperCut MF/NG 22.1.1 upgrade checklist for more information. [PO-1327]

Security:

  • Addressed a Path Traversal vulnerability in the Application Server and Site Server. Under specific conditions, this could potentially allow an attacker read-only access to the server’s file system. CVE-2023-31046 . [PO-1277]
  • Addressed a Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the Application Server, which, under specific conditions, could potentially enable an attacker to alter security settings or execute arbitrary code. This could be exploited if the target is an admin with a current login session. Exploiting this would typically involve the possibility of deceiving an admin into clicking a specially crafted malicious link, potentially leading to unauthorized changes. CVE-2023-2533 . [PO-1366]
  • Introduced security hardening layer through security.properties files - as per new features section above.
  • Increased the minimum password length requirement for newly created internal users to 8 characters. [PO-1373]

For more information refer to the June Security Bulletin .

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue that caused ancillary PaperCut executables including the PC-Client to crash with an error when run in some Windows environments. [PO-1295]
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the Accessible UI for PaperCut 22.0.11 and 22.0.12 to display a blank screen after login. [PO-1400]

    • Device logout timeout now resets on screen touches and key pad presses. Timeout is not reset by on screen keyboard key strokes. On newer devices using the WebKit browser, a two minute timeout is enacted while the on screen keyboard is raised so that users are not logged out while typing. On older devices using the NetFront browser, the timeout is effectively disabled while the on screen keyboard is raised. Regular timeout is reinstated when the on screen keyboard is lowered. [CDSS-1183]

Please wait for other jobs to finish.” to be displayed at the start of the scan if the previous scan had been completed by selecting the sharp device home button from the “Scan More or Finish” screen. [MAC-6251]
      • Added some navigation improvements when the “ext-device.sharp-osa-n2.device-functions-on-login” configuration setting is enabled. The application now returns to the native home screen when the scan completes instead of navigating to the PaperCut home screen. The PaperCut home screen button is hidden at the top left of the page on the Scan Action List, Scan Action and Scan Completion page.

19.0.2

Build 49181
Print Provider version 100.5.0.540
11 Apr, 2019

Note: This release does not support 32-bit workstations. If you have users launching the User Client or Release Station on a 32-bit workstation, see End-of-life for 32-bit Operating Systems . [PC-15503]

Fix:

18.3.2

Build 47391
15 Nov, 2018

New Features:

  • Google Cloud Directory (G Suite and Google Cloud Identity):

    • Sync users from Google Cloud Directory, which supports both G Suite and Google Cloud Identity.
    • Users can now authenticate using their Google credentials on all PaperCut interfaces.
    • Google Cloud Directory can be configured as either a primary or secondary sync source, and is fully compatible to run alongside another sync source such as Active Directory, giving administrators a flexible migration path.
    • You can now configure a ‘Sign in with Google’ button to display on the User web interface, Admin web interface and Mobility Print on Chromebooks. This lets users sign in to PaperCut MF without retyping their credentials.
  • Mobility Print on Chromebooks: Users can now click a ‘Sign in with Google’ button instead of typing their credentials.

  • Integrated Scanning:

    • Text-searchable documents in the public percolator for OCR:
      • Users can now create text-searchable documents from any type of Scan Action, to easily find important information in a document. DOCX and PDF text-searchable outputs are supported.
      • Added the ability for Scan Actions that create text-searchable documents to automatically detect French, German, and Spanish languages. Detection of multiple languages in the same document is supported. Note: An active Premium Upgrade Assurance (PUA) subscription is required to use this feature.
  • Change print job settings on Kyocera: The ability to change the settings of held print jobs is now available on Kyocera devices.

Enhancements:

  • Installation: When installing PaperCut MF, you can now skip the step to select a user/group sync source and configure that separately later. This speeds up the installation.

  • Integrated Scanning:

    • Added the ability to start a new scan job from the Scan More or Finish screen, retaining the current scan job’s settings and account selection attributes.

      This applies to:

      • Fuji Xerox ApeosPort V+
      • HP (OXP)
      • Xerox (EIP 3.0+)
      • Toshiba (e-Bridge Open Platform V3+)
    • Added the ability to configure (on the Admin web interface Scan Actions page) up to three output file types that a user can choose from at the MFD.

    • Some of PaperCut MF’s advanced Integrated Scanning features, such as Scan to Cloud Storage and creating text searchable documents, make use of “PaperCut Cloud Services”. Document processing in the cloud takes away the hassle of managing the performance of local infrastructure.

      Note: An active Premium Upgrade Assurance (PUA) subscription is required to use this feature.

  • Security:

    • Port 9195: PaperCut MF now supports both self-signed and CA-signed SSL/ HTTPS SHA2 certificates on port 9195.

      This applies to:

      • Konica Minolta (OpenAPI)
      • Sindoh (OpenAPI)
    • Port 80: Tightened security on port 80 when used for payment gateways to ensure unnecessary information is not included in the http header.

    • Site Server: You can now specify a list of IP addresses or subnets that are allowed to submit information to the PaperCut MF Application Server. This is configured in Options > Advanced > Security section (or using the auth.site.allowed-addresses config key).

  • Admin web interface: In ‘Options’ there is now a ‘Tools’ tab. The Tools page lists all of the third-party systems that PaperCut MF directly integrates with.

  • Web services API:

    • getPrinterProperty() now supports a ‘printer-id’ option, which is also available via the server-command utility. This option improves the usefulness of the health monitoring API.
    • getSharedAccountProperty() now supports an ‘account-id’ option, which is also available via the server-command utility. This option is useful when setting the printer property advanced-config.override-no-popup-charge-shared-id using setPrinterPropertyMethod().

Fixes:

  • Security:

    • It is no longer possible to log in to the Site Server using the locally defined Admin credentials. Admin credentials from the PaperCut MF Application Server must be used.

Enhancements:

  • Tuned Java parameters to improve Application Server performance on large sites.
  • Pay Station: When a Pay Station fails to connect to the Application Server to update a user’s balance, the Pay Station now displays an error message and prints a transaction error report (if an acknowledgement printer is attached), so the user has proof that the transaction did not succeed.

Fixes:

  • Reduced the CreateSSLKeystore default certificate validity duration to not exceed 2038, to safeguard older devices running into a 2038 date rollover issue.

  • macOS High Sierra (CUPS): Reduced the time it takes for a printer to be available in the Control Printer Monitoring.command script.

  • Standard Release station via Site Server: Fixed an issue that caused an empty print release list for Hold/Release queue managers.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Site Servers to display lower total amounts of Devices on the ‘About’ tab if those Devices were registered directly to the same Site Server.

  • Integrated Scanning: Fixed an issue preventing Integrated Scanning failure notifications when the MFP is connected to a Site Server.

  • User Client:

    • Fixed an issue that prevented the User Client from launching when the User Client icon was double-clicked in the Windows task tray.
    • Fixed an issue that caused high memory usage, especially when a high number of shared accounts are used.

    **Note: User Clients require an upgrade.

  • Web Print:

    • Fixed an issue that caused the “Maximum document/file upload size” value to be ignored and set to 256MB instead.
    • Sandbox mode: Fixed an issue that caused multiple print jobs to be generated for each Web Print job in some virtual environments.

    ***Note: Web Print sandbox servers require an upgrade.

  • Google Cloud Print:

    • Fixed a rare issue that caused a Google Cloud Print job to be printed multiple times.
    • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented PaperCut MF from publishing all printers to Google Cloud Print when there were a large number of printers.
  • Printer compatibility improvements:

    • RISO ComColor with PaperCut Global Print Driver: Added a new PDL transform to fix an issue that caused the printed output to have incorrect settings when printing in duplex, color, or selecting specific tray settings.
    • Canon printers on Linux and MacOS: Fixed an issue that caused an incorrect number of copies and pages to be reported for some Canon devices when using CUPS printing.
    • Epson printers: Fixed an issue that caused an incorrect number of copies and pages to be reported for some Epson printers.

    ****Note: Secondary servers require a Print Provider upgrade.
