dangerous ctrl+c

 Here you have a shocking NEWS about CTRL+C.  It sounds like a “must read” for me. Hope the same with you too.

 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 Javascripts and ASP.

Just try this:

1) Copy any text by pressing Ctrl + C
2) Click the Link: http://www.sourcecodesworld.com/special/clipboard.asp
3) 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.

I believe this would save us from online frauds [without thinking much on the probability ratios] !🙂
