Sysadmin Help Sectionby adminpout (Initiate)
|on Feb 04, 2000 at 01:58 UTC||Need Help??|
Hmmmm my petition is coming from a different realm of monks. The realm of sysadmin monks. We didn't write the code, but we have to know enough about how to modify it when there isn't a true perl monk to do it. Of course, this would be done with the utmost care and with viligence while we learn more to write our own future perls.
Most currently on this sysadmin's mind is the "CERT Advisory CA-2000-02 Malicious HTML Tags Embedded in Client Web Requests" that was just released.
The HTML pages that run cgi that run perl..... ahhhhhhhh
To place a character check for allowable characters, and if not the allowed, then change it to an underscore.
The code has been suggested, but this sysadmin pouts because she can't decide exactly where it goes and can't get it to work with existing code.
The books are open, the sysadmin-wanna-be-perl-monk is learning, but needs help.
Is there a section the Friar can open that will give different examples of how to modify code, whether it's after the read(STDIN, the @prompts array, or checking the $fields... Arggghhhhh
