So the question is, can an outgoing rdp connection be dangerous for the client? The only way I can think of is through local drives or the clipboard. I'm asking specifically about the MS Remote Desktop Connection here. Thanks for any insight!
We had the issue with RDP in a Windows Server, that the clipboard was shared through all active connected users. The only restriction was, that you had to try to paste things of the same format of the copied ones (by other people).

I mean, if I copied a text, you could paste it in a document on your side.
If you copied a picture I could paste it on paint or a document, but if you copied a file, then I would not be able to paste it until I was in windows explorer.

But AFAIK the clipboard can be deactivated through the settings of the RDP (I can't copy + paste through it in my current job)

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
