Concerning Browser Vulnerability Lives Despite Recent Fixes

Google just released Chrome 105 which contains fixes for 24 existing vulnerabilities in the web browser.  However, one significant flaw has yet to be addressed.  When browsing a malicious website with Chrome, threat actors have the ability to over-write your system’s clipboard without your permission or even knowledge, thus poisoning the contents.

It is common practice for computer users to employ the methods of cutting & pasting and copying & pasting as a part of day-to-day digital activities.  Pasting a website into a browser address bar, for example, is fine if the contents of what you are pasting is what you’ve intentionally copied from another source.  However, if your clipboard has been overwritten without your knowledge, you could inadvertently paste malicious content.

Although no known malicious attacks have used this particular Chrome vulnerability, threat actors are constantly looking for new ways to harm our digital lives.  It’s just a matter of time.  Forewarned is forearmed, as they say.

If you would like to test your Chrome browser, visit this Malewarebytes Labs article which provides a safe demonstration of this security flaw as well as additional details.

To ensure safe cutting & pasting or copying & pasting of content, consider using a clipboard manager which gives you visibility over what is on your clipboard.
