Your Clipboard is Not Safe!

Joe Stagner has posted an illuminating talk in video form along with sample code which demonstrates how easy it is for javascript code to capture the contents of the Windows Clipboard. Of course this could be a serious risk if you use the clipboard to paste in long, complex secure passwords. I will have to check the code for Keith's password manager tool to see about adding a clear clipboard function after pasting. Or the Windows API direct typing.
