Good point, and a nice reminder we really need a manageable way to take back control of our browsers.

This is why we block all javascript for sites we don’t know. Is there a way to do that without javascript enabled?

You could probably hide some tiny text somewhere in between the text that the user wants to copy-paste.

That is an excellent point.

I think Firefox has a setting in the about:config that can disable these events. There are two iirc, one being dom.allow_cut_copy and the other dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled

What’s scary is how easily this would work on someone like me :/

Oh man, I just wanted to be lazy… though it is fun to type it in at times

You often end up copying some non-sense letters, too, so this is probably a good habit to get into, in general.

If you use Tilix it has this https://i.imgur.com/6LROXW4.png

Just the simple feature of letting the user see the full command before it’s execute will prevent almost all of these modify-on-copy attacks. Wonder why all console emulators don’t do this.
