in reply to Is /cgi-bin safe?

Has any of you info about whether putting perl scripts in /cgi-bin is safe or not? I couldnīt find that over the web.
Safe how?
Wich script is this? Webscr.cgi?
Try visiting webscr.cgi to see what happens. You're assuming it's a script, only the administrator would know for sure.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
