in reply to Security issues when allowing file upload via CGI

You would want to make sure that you disallow execution of any file that the user uploads, otherwise the user could just upload a file that punts out your passwd file or whatever.
But off the top of my head, I can't see it being a major problem....
/me waits to be corrected :-)

choroba played with the band on Saturday, so Sunday was very sleepy
[choroba]: managed to release Syntax::Construct with 5.28 support in the night, though
[Corion]: choroba: Whee ;)
[Corion]: marto: Ouch - I would've thought that kids adapt much better, but that's obviously not the case...
[marto]: well, their mother let them sleep till 15:00 & 12:00 last week, which didn't help them adjust :P
[Corion]: I was "productive" over the weekend in the sense that I revived my old "Perlmonks on SQLite" code, which likely means I can get a test instance back up running on my webhost. Small steps :)
[Corion]: marto: Ow, no, that doesn't help at all :)
[choroba]: Related to the new release, anyone could explain this or this tester report?
[Discipulus]: hello crew! marto thanks for the message: but I how can I help? i'm testing cpan Padre atm problem with Client::Debug
[choroba]: I don't happen to have 5.10.0 nor 5.8.5 handy...

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
