Cross Site Printing

Cross Site Printing is an attack, when a victim visits a malicious website, the site sends specially created javascript program that print messages to the victim’s internal printers. These could be simple text messages, or more complex (and better formatted) postscript messages. The attack works only if the browser allows the running of javascript from the malicious site. For Firefox users, the “noscript ” plugin is a powerful defense against this attack. IE does not allow selectively blocking javascripts yet, so a simple solution is not available for IE.
