IE and Netscape can read your clipboard

Ever had to enter a password that is like 16 characters or your credit card number or even something like a serial number? The most common way is to copy it into your clipboard and paste it on the webpage. Well, you are in for a shock.

Copy this into a file and save it.

<script language="JavaScript">
var content = clipboardData.getData("Text");
if (content!=null) {document.write(content);}
else {document.write('Clipboard is empty');}

Copy some text into your clipboard. Execute it. You might get a toobar block, but there are ways to work around it just that I only meant to demostrate this. Just allow it.

See what I mean? You still feel safe about your clipboard?
