Security: The Dangers Of Copying And Pasting R Code.

From the post:

Most of the time when we stumble across a code snippet online, we often blindly copy and paste it into the R console. I suspect almost everyone does this. After all, what’s the harm?

The post illustrates how innocent appearing R code can conceal unhappy surprises!

Concealment isn’t limited to R code.

Any CSS controlled display is capable of concealing code for you to copy-n-paste into a console, terminal window, script or program.

Endless possibilities for HTML pages/emails with code + a “little something extra.”

What are your copy-n-paste practices?
