Thousands of misconfigured 3D printers on interwebz run risk of sabotage



You can't blame OctoPrint for this, the first run wizard has a big warning when you disable the access controls.

As it says in the manual:

"Upon first start a configuration wizard is provided which allows configuration of the first administrator account or alternatively disabling Access Control (which is NOT recommended for systems that are directly accessible via the Internet!)."
