Clipboard Monitor Alert

This dialog box is shown when Password Depot is about to move sensitive data to the clipboard and detects that an unknown application monitors changes to the clipboard, using clipboard viewer technology.

NOTE: This does not automatically mean there is a real threat or infection. It is mainly a notification that you should investigate.
