WARNING: I.E./Maxthon Security FLAW, Sites able to Steal

Have you ever copied information to your clipboard, then later went online? If the info you copied was of a sensitive nature, then this is gonna scare ya like Freddy jumping out of your bathroom closet.

Did you know that a website can easily snatch the info on your clipboard with about one line of Javascript?

Yup, it's true. Not all browsers are susceptible to this, but Internet Explorer and other I.E. based ones are.

First Copy any line of this article and then head to the page below:

Code:

This does not affect the FireFox browser.

chrome

BTW They have configuration settings onscreen for IE and also a Freeware tool to download (2.6MB download inc VB6)
