Jeffa,

If you have the time, I would greatly appreciate it if you would give an explanation or example(s) of the security risks related to using OO in perl. Or perhaps suggest a link to where I could learn more?

Thanks

Anne

    I was merely referring to "locking down" access to certain methods via the concepts (and implementation) of private, protected and public method modifiers. In other words, secure your methods' accessibility from clients.

      Thanks jeffa,

      A lot of my web app methods are activated through URLs, via catalyst, so I want to make sure I'm not missing something I need to know about protecting those methods.

      In other words, deny access, forbid access, put a padlock on it, lock the door, nail the windows shut, eat those pancakes :)

        I do believe Howard Hughes would approve. :)
