That's exactly what my suggestion eliminates.

If Joe goes to BadCo the script from BadCo can not
access the clipboard in any way. Only when the user
says 
"paste" (hitting ctrl-v for example) then the script
gets the data through the paste event. It can also not
write to the clipboard unless the user orders(hitting
ctrl-c) it to copy the data.

No need for message boxes because the script can not
even get to the clipboard directly...no security
problem.

And a message box to ask the user "do you realy mean
to paste the data to the script?" when the user hit's
ctrl-v is a bit pointless, is it not?
(turning the ignition key ... "Do you really want me
to start the motor?" :) )

Jan
