upstream qemu"):
Usage: spicevdagent=1|0 (default=0)
Enables spice vdagent. The Spice vdagent is an optional component for
enhancing user experience and performing guest-oriented management
tasks. Its features includes: client mouse mode (no need to grab mouse
by client, no mouse lag), automatic adjustment of screen resolution,
copy and paste (text and image) between client and domU. It also
requires vdagent service installed on domU o.s. to work.
Thanks, that's helpful.  What are the security implications ?

In particular, does it mean that when the user has a spice client
connected to a guest, the guest can spy on the user's clipboard all
the time ?


Can you better explain your concerns about this?
