Years ago, I recall reading that early on in the history of inkjet printers, even 1990, 'features' were built in the printers to detect if the printed document "looked like" a US dollar, small yellow dots, precisely placed to encode source data, were written over the face of the document.It seemed to me that removing the yellow cartridge, plus a thorough exhausting of the residual material, would improve the security.
Based on what I heard, it wasn't clear that such security dots, or other features, were used for non-currency-counterfeiting applications.   It sounds from these recent incidents as if inkjet printers are putting identifiable information on virtually any printouts.
