in thread Perl 5.16 binary filename security problem?

That's not how security response teams work. They accept reports, make patches, and coordinate releases for bugs. They don't publicize non-bugs.

Also, Reini already publicized it. Didn't notice? Yeah, that's because it's not a problem, so far as anyone can figure.

    Huh? PerlMonks is not a security team

    Well, if the "relevant discussions" are on a private list, there apparently is more to it

      PerlMonks is not a security team

      No, but the group that received Reini's mail -- and whom you're asking to disclose the contents of that mail -- are.

      there apparently is more to it

      No, there really isn't.
