Security issue and solution for terminal command accessed by public userby keenlearner (Acolyte)
|on Jul 06, 2012 at 16:43 UTC||Need Help??|
keenlearner has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying to make a web base application to convert between units by using the command program called "units" http://linux.die.net/man/1/units
Basically the web application will get the input of a number, from-unit, to-unit then get the result by calling the terminal with perl.
What security issue will be the consequence of this ? If any, how to solve the issues ?
