Using the 3-parameter form of open would be a good practice to check for. It would be good to warn about system or exec calls that pass arguments inside the first parameter (i.e. system("$command $arg1 $arg2") instead of system($command, $arg1, $arg2)).

If practical, warning about DBI statements that use inline variables where prototypes are better (i.e. $dbh->prepare("update table set my_val = $somevalue") instead of $dbh->prepare("update table set my_val = ?")). I'm guessing that would be a challenge, but it sure would be nifty.

Yes, proper untainting would probably solve these issues, but I've seen too many coders untaint such things extremely poorly.

    [marto]: and hoped that I'd be able to continue the momentum :)
    [marto]: I can't even access client email, nor my employers since those idiots moved to citrix
    [marto]: it literally doesn't work. Also, via their citrix interface theres no way to open attachments, or upload an attachment for sending. The company policy is that you email you work account from a personal one, and forward it on from there :/
    [Corion]: marto: Ouch :/ And having that as a (written) policy strikes me as inane...
