( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thanks. That put me on track to find the solution.

What you didn't show was how to pass $bad_user_id to function purge. Here is my solution:

sub purge_bad_user { my $bad_user = shift; $bad_user = -10 unless defined $bad_user; CGI::Session->find( sub { purge(@_,$bad_user) } ); } sub purge { my ($session,$bad_user_id) = @_; next if $session->is_empty; # <-- already expired?! if ( ($session->param('user_id') == $bad_user_id) ) { $session->delete(); $session->flush(); } my $db = 'test'; my $hostname = 'localhost'; my $user = 'rejbyers'; my $dbpwd = 'Didr39Qcab'; my $dbh = DBI->connect_cached("DBI:mysql:database=$db;host=$hostname +",$user,$dbpwd,{RaiseError => 1}) or die "Failed to connect to the DB.\n"; use Math::Random::MT::Auto::Range; my %prng_options; $prng_options{'LOW'} = 1000000000; $prng_options{'HIGH'} = 9999999999; $prng_options{'TYPE'} = 'INTEGER'; my $prng = Math::Random::MT::Auto::Range->new(%prng_options); my $p = $prng->rrand(); my $sql = "UPDATE users SET password = '$p' WHERE idusers = $bad_use +r_id"; $dbh->do($sql); $dbh->disconnect; }

Please let me know if I missed something in this. I am still working on testing it.
