[TIPS] - clipboard safety lesson

 
Since today is an in-service day I thought I'd take this opportunity to show you something that just may change the way you play online.
 
Copy the paragraph below, then click the link above.
 
BEWARE! This site shows that it is possible for websites to "steal" what's on your clipboard. Most sites don't. But it only takes one, and it only takes ONE TIME when you've copied your social security number for some reason, and <presto!> - now THEY'VE got it, too.
 
The moral of this story is: if you're going to be surfing the Internet, make sure you don't have anything of value on your clipboard. How can you clear it? Simple - just highlight any word anywhere and copy it. That word will replace what was in your clipboard.
