( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Please could someone guide me as to how best to write the regex below. The issue I have with it is that someone could write 'dRop' and the regex would not pick it up.
if ( $_ =~ /$(--|;|DELETE\s|DROP\s|UPDATE\s|EXEC\s|INSERT\s|CREATE\s|d +elete\s|drop\s|update\s|exec\s|insert\s|create\s)/ ) { print "There is a possible injection attack here"; ## Security fun +ction here die; }
Update: It appears the answer is:
if ( $_ =~ /$(--|;|DELETE\s|DROP\s|UPDATE\s|EXEC\s|INSERT\s|CREATE\s +)/i ) { die; }
But how do I stop the case insensitivity applying to '--' and ';'?

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.
