      Stealing Clipboard Info

      Have you ever copied information to your clipboard, then later went online? If the info you copied was of a sensitive nature, then this is gonna scare ya like Bigfoot jumping out of your bathroom closet.

      Did you know that a website can easily snatch the info on your clipboard with about one line of _Javascript? Yes, it's true. Not all browsers are susceptible to this, but Internet Explorer is. I mean, just imagine if that info had been a password, credit card number, or bank account info!

      To disable this "feature"?

      1. Open Internet Explorer and click the Tools menu, Internet Options.

      2. Click the Security tab, then press the "Custom Level" button.



      3. OK, grab your shovel, it's time to do some digging. Under the "Scripting" section, hunt for an entry called "Allow paste operations via script". Set to disable (or at least prompt).



      4. Hit OK until you're back to Explorer.

      Greetings Asafo37, Ifasehun & WombanIsis!

      Welcome to the post. It's wonderful to know that you find the
      information interesting, and helpful.

      One of the things that catches my eye a lot of times is how a lot
      of people myself included at times, are always looking for security
      risks or threats to be on a big scale.

      Often times it's the simplest things that we do while we are using
      the computer that makes us all so vulnuerable to all these problems.

      We always have to be on the alert, and never take security
      for granted. Prevention is better than a cure.

      Much appreciation to you all for taking the time out to check
      out the thread and post your views.


      Peace & Blessings!

      Question:
      What is the Windows Clipboard?

      Answer:
      The Windows clipboard is used to temporarily store stuff. This "stuff" can come in the form of just about anything. Images, files, documents, etc. - they can all be placed on the clipboard. Once something has been copied to the clipboard, it can be pasted into another location.

      The clipboard isn't a program you can actually access and play with. It's a built-in windows component that works transparently. When you copy or cut, the info is put onto this clipboard. When you paste, the information that's on the clipboard is put into whatever it is you're working on.

      For instance, if I have some information on a web page that I want to put into a word processing document, this is what I'd do:

      1. I highlight and copy (CTRL-C) the text from the web page. When I do this, the text is placed on the clipboard.

      2. Now, I open my word processor (MS Word 2000 and up must be open before you copy). Right now, the info is still sitting on the clipboard and can be pasted into my word processor or any other program that can handle text.

      3. OK, now I right-click a blank area of my word processing document and choose Paste from the resulting menu (or just use CTRL-V) . This will take the info that's currently sitting on the clipboard (in this case, the web page text) and attempt to put it into my word processing document.

      I say "attempt to put the info on the clipboard into the word processor" because sometimes the info that's on your clipboard is not compatible with the program you're using. For example, if you try to paste a picture into notepad, that just isn't going to work.

      For example, let's say you were working on a report in MS Word and you want to quote some information you uncovered on the web. Rather than printing out the web page and re-typing the block of text you would like to quote, you can highlight the text on the webpage and copy it to the clipboard (highlight by holding down your left mouse button and dragging it over the section of text you would like to have. Copy it by right-clicking that section of text and selecting Copy from the menu that pops up).

      Now, head back to MS Word and position the cursor where you would like to insert the text. Hit CRTL-V (or click the Edit menu, Paste ), and presto, the web page text you copied has now been pasted into your Word doc.
