in thread Untainting safely. (b0iler proofing?)

There are some untainting modules on CPAN:

  • String::ShellQuote "contains some functions which are useful for quoting strings which are going to pass through the shell or a shell-like object."

  • CGI::Untaint "provides a simple, convenient, abstracted and extensible manner for validating and untainting the input from web forms." Including dates, email, urls, isbn, uk postal codes, and credit card numbers!

    [Corion]: Yay. Traditional finance situation averted. Bonds can be quoted in amounts (1_000_000 EUR) or per unit (1 unit). And a traditional error is to trade 2_000_000 piece when you meant to trade 2_000_000 EUR.
    [Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
    [Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
    [GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
    [Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
