Try to trick it with dependencies.

$q->param( userid_untaint => 'dummy junk' ); my $dfv_profile = { required => [qw (userid_untaint)], dependencies => { userid_untaint => [ qw( userid ) ], }, constraints => { userid => { name => 'userid_exists', constraint => sub { return !MyDBITools->user_exists($ca_obj); }, }, userid_untaint => { name => 'userid_untaint', constraint => sub { my $tmp = $q->param( 'userid' ); $tmp =~ s/^[-\@\w.]+$/; $q->param( userid => $tmp ); }, }, }, msgs => { format => '%s', constraints => { 'userid_exists' => "User ID already exists.", 'userid_untaint'=> "User ID contains bad stuff", }, }, };

The idea being to use a dummy constraint to do the untainting. This assumes that the module will perform the userid_untaint first because it's required, that will re-set the userid parameter with an untainted version, then dependencies will force the userid to be required also, then the module will run the userid validation which then performs the original function on the now untainted value.

I have no idea if this will actually work.

Why can't you untaint and check your database at the same time?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
