Security Warning

Tech News

Just found this whilst surfing, so I am passing it on as it could have security implications. When you copy (Ctrl+C) to the clipboard, it apparently can still be viewed by others on the internet. I have pasted the article below so that you can take a look at it :

Ctrl+C may be the most important work we do everyday. But it’s not a Ctrl+very safe thing to do. Read on to know why. What happens when you press Ctrl+C while you are Online… We do copy various data by Ctrl + C for pasting elsewhere. This copied data is stored in clipboard and is accessible from the net by a combination of Javascripts and ASP.
Just try this:

1) Copy any text by Ctrl + C

2) Click the Link:< language= " JavaScript ">

var content= clipboardData . getData ( ” Text ” ); alert(content);

I haven’t had time to digest it proparly and experiment with it yet and check it all out, but thought that it was worth sharing with you all.
