I forget where I read it, but some guy posted that the Code Red worm scanned
his printer and caused it to either hang (requiring a "reboot") or else to
think it was some kind of print job and spew several pages of gibberish.
You might be able to hack a PS printer by sending an incomplete print job
that would trap and send back the PS to an IP address; then you submit a
partial print job, capture the next print job and send to the hostile IP.
