It is a replacement for the synchronous execCommand-based copy & paste. Async Clipboard requests doesn’t block the page while waiting the process, it’s a improvement over sync requests as well as simplifying events and aligning them with the Drag & Drop API.
It is a pentester tool that can read and write content to the clipboard by just opening a link, using async clipboard API.
How does Async Clipboard API work?
Copy: Writing Text to the Clipboard
Text can be silently and automatically copied to the clipboard by calling writeText(), without requesting permission. Example:
navigator.clipboard.writeText(‘Malicious command to be copied’);
Simple, huh? How dangerous it can be if the user is convinced to run the clipboard content? A windows reverse shell can be made if a user type the following shortcut sequence after visiting the malicious website generated by clipboardme: windows+x, p, ctrl + v. No need to hit enter, just persuade the target to run that “shortcut” for an attacker take control of a windows system. This scenario can occur when the target is supposed to execute clipboard contents.
Text can be read (requires permission) from the clipboard by calling readText(). Example:
navigator.clipboard.readText().then(clipText => document.write(clipText));
Users routinely copy sensitive information like passwords and personal details to the clipboard, which could then be read by any page. Clipboardme tool can create a HTTPS malicious page to grab that content.
To help prevent abuse, clipboard access is only allowed when a page is the active tab and over secured domains (https). Pages in active tabs can write to the clipboard without requesting permission, but reading from the clipboard always requires permission.
