Internal threats?

Parent article: Printer vulnerabilities via firmware update

My employer has a large number of aging HP printers all about, and so far as I know, all the print queues are at least visible to all. In my area, we have two LaserJet 8100s that almost date back to the Clinton Administration. So what happens if someone decides to see what Corporate Finance is up to ahead of the quarterly earnings report, and tweaks the firmware on the beancounters' printers?

(Great, now that I've mentioned the idea on the Internet, if someone does it where I work, they'll blame me.)
