xdotool to securely type out a password (as opposed to using the clipboard) from a password manager (
pass) and I'm wondering if xdotool has a log somewhere, which would obviously make it insecure.
So it there a log, or any other potential insecurity that anyone else can see?
For reference, this is what I'm using:
#!/usr/bin/env python3 import subprocess import sys from time import sleep if len(sys.argv) == 2: delay = int(sys.argv) else: delay = 3 data = sys.stdin.readline().rstrip('\n') sleep(delay) subprocess.call(['xdotool', 'type', '--clearmodifiers', data])
