[Openvas-discuss] "Are you dead?" Really?

You must admit, there is more than a touch of ironic humor there.  I ran a scan of a Deli's network and when it hit their receipt printer it printed out about 3 feet with the word "Hello" in it.  I wasn't there when it hit.  They thought the printer had become self-aware.

Running an openvas scan with printer scanning enabled CAN result in several pages containing the string “are you dead?” being printed. In this case, in a hospital, in the ob/gyn suite.

Not good.

I’ve searched through the NVTs and can’t find where this string is sourced. Does anyone know?
