Another printing battle with HP?

I went through this a couple of months ago: My HP 8610 stopped printing. I eventually found out that it was because Apple refused to recognize the driver for some sort of out-of-date signature. HP said it was Apple's fault. It took a couple of days for HP to produce some new drivers, or some old drivers with a new data and then the printer worked again.

And today it happened again. I'm running Big Sur 11.2. No print. I went and deleted the printer and tried to hook it up again. I got the message "fax.backend will damage your computer". Which is both mystifying and alarming. Because as far as I or malwarebytes can tell, I don't have fax.backend anywhere in my computer. It's just the Mac OS refusing to run the HP driver.

This is silly.
