in thread How do I execute as root?

The main perl documentation on taint checking is IIRC in perlrun {my $update = "d'oh ... no it isn't. Fastolfe's right ... but there is some info on -T in this page" }.

Our own Ovid is currently writing a CGI scripting tutorial, which has some info on security. Try also searching on "taint mode" and "CGI security" and the like on this site to see the fossilized ... err, collected wisdom monks have offered so far.

Happy coding!
