HP printer problems

Hi everyone,
we have an old HP printer (LaserJet 700 MFP m775) at the warehouse and when my shift leader tries to print something he gets this screen. He uses a MacBook Air mid-2020.
Translation: hpPreProsessing.filter is damaging for the computer.

Anybody know what to make of this? Can that really be malware? Why does it come up when he tries to print?

Thanks, now I feel so stupid, hahaha. Sorry for polluting the forums!

No problem. The HP issue was an avoidable annoyance, on HP’s part, with a weird dire appearance. Luckily, it’s a simple fix.
