Printcap Files

Does anyone know where printcap files are available? I need one for LaserjetIII
(or Panasonic KXP-4430 if available!). Thanks in advance!


1. "+ +" in printcap files

A machine at our site was recently the target of a breakin.  Someone
guessed a user's password and then used the expreserve bug to manipulate

I also noticed that our /etc/printcap file was modified.  The characters
"+ +" were placed on a line by themselves, followed by a bunch of ascii

Does this conform to any known method of compromising security?
