Google Chrome Bug Lets Sites Silently Overwrite System Clipboard Content

Google Chrome bug lets sites silently overwrite system clipboard content. The clipboard poisoning attack is said to have been accidentally introduced in Chrome version 104. A "major" security issue could allow malicious web pages to automatically overwrite clipboard content without requiring any user consent or interaction by simply visiting them. Threat actors could overwrite the clipboard with a link to specially crafted websites, leading victims to download dangerous software.
