    Last night I went to print to pdf and had a printer I never installed as default. The printer was a persons mb pro brother printer Cups. I deleted it and noticed I had my firewall(OSX) on allow all incoming connections. My firewall log has a krb5kdc and CUPS is listening reference. Did someone access my computer? How can I find out if it was ? Did my computer find the printer on its own?

    Might have picked up a bonjour shared printer somewhere? Not completely sure how that works as I have a local printer at home.

    It could be there that if a network connection you joined had a Shared Printer. Probably just stuck in your settings (I'm fairly sure that happens). Or if someone tried to print something and that printer was being shared, it would have come up automatically.

    CUPS is built into OS X. No worries there. You probably picked up a bonjour printer as was said.
