IE 9 clipboard and external websites access
I note that IE 9 can allow external websites to read the clipboard.
Why would a user want an external website to read their clipboard?

Maybe when you copy-paste something to paste in the comments box or a form ...
But you can disable this access via Internet Options > Security > Custom Level.
