...and I've never experienced any, at least with the 'name brand' ones that are often recommended here on PerlMonks.

The most popular ones are community tested. Instead of trolling, could you share with us some popular modules you've come across in the 13 years you've been here that may be infected? That would be the responsible thing to do... no?

    I've made 10000s of writeups but I dont have a memory, so I need your help to remember what modules on CPAN are, were, or could be malware or they phone homed or dropped a rootkit on a machine or wiped out your home folder or caused a kernel panic.
