Clipboard hacking

Clipboard is a cross application gadget that operating systems use to give you a quick copy and paste tool which can cross over content from application to application. But keeping sensitive content in clipboard is not safe. Here is one reason you might not want to save your passwords, pin codes, account numbers etc in your clip board (copy pasting or otherwise) while surfing the internet.



This is a simple script that will enable a website to get whatever was saved in your clipboard:

<Script Language="JavaScript">
var content = clipboardData.getData("Text");
alert(content);
</Script>

This site explains how, once collected, it can be forwarded and used.
