CTRL+C Shortcut to get Hacked!

Dangerous CTRL+C

Dangerous CTRL+C

Oh yea, just using Ctrl+C shortcut to copy any sensitve information can put you at risk! With the combined help of Javascript and ASP or any server side programming languages the data from your clipboard can be sent through the web to a hacker. And we all surf with our javascripts enabled as majority of sites require javascript to be enabled in order to function properly. Hope that you haven’t copied a credit card number recently before surfing! I surely have done that mistake. But so far I didn’t have any problems.

Thinking that I am just lying or over-reacting  ?

here try this, visit http://www.sourcecodesworld.com/special/clipboard.asp

So, how do you fix this problem ?

Simple! just follow these steps:

1. Go to Internet Explorer’s options under tools.

2. Click the Security Tab.

3. Click Custom level.

4. Look for “Allow Programmatic Clipboard Access” under “Scripting”.

5. Disable it.

I am currently using Google Chrome and it doesn’t seems to have this issue. Looks like by default its fixed. I am pretty sure Firefox has also fixed this issue, anyway you guys can check it.

Stay Safe!
