community service notice

If you’re filling out online forms, don’t use the copy and paste function for any sensitive information. It can be retrieved via the internet. Don’t believe me? Try this. Copy something–anything–and then click here.
Oh, and this is only a problem if you use Internet Explorer. Safari/Opera/Firefox users, rejoice!

Thanks to Mukesh Kesharwani for the original warning.

  1. Thank Princess!
    (Yet another reason NOT to use IE).

  2. cool. the last thing i copied was my cousin calling me a toolbag.

  3. See, this is why I don’t use IE. All the inherent vulnerabilites due to its being built in to the OS (you can’t uninstall it) and it’s proudly touted ActiveX controls (which are a goddamned pain in the ass).

    Firefox all the way.
