When we use any secure service and copying a password from a password manager like KeepassXC, the password is stored in your OS clipboard manager, unencrypted. Once the password is there, it is susceptible to be attacked.
On Linux as far as I understand all system processes have access to the clipboard and potential access to any temporarily stored password or text.
I do acknowledge that the machine may need to be compromised for such an attack to occur, however there is also an issue from a malicious browser script that may be able to access the clipboard without the machine being compromised.
The question; is there a way to encrypt the clipboard to prevent such an attack vector? Why in this day and age with all the knowledge we have from Wikileaks and Snowden, that the clipboard is not encrypted?
