ATTENTION internet users !!

Ctrl+C may be the most important work we do everyday. But it's not a 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 JavaScript’s and ASP.

Just try this:

Copy any text by Ctrl +C

Click the Link: http://www.sourcecodesworld.com/special/clipboard.asp

You will see the text you copied was accessed by this web page.
Do not keep sensitive data (like passwords, credit card numbers, PIN etc.) in the clipboard while surfing the web. It is extremely easy to extract the text stored in the clipboard to steal your sensitive information.

To avoid Clipboard Hack Problem, do the following:

Go to internet options-> security
Press custom level
In the security settings, select disable under Allow paste operations via script.
Now the contents of your clipboard are safe.
