Some Dell products allow the creation of pre-defined email addresses ("shortcuts") to streamline the use of functions such as "Scan to Email". On vulnerable products it is possible to craft a shortcut that contains hidden email addresses that are not displayed to the user via the operator panel or on the embedded web server. In the event a hidden email address is added, anyone making use of the shortcut would have their scanned data sent to additional email addresses they were unaware of, although a close examination of the header of the delivered email would reveal the additional email addresses.
