crazyinsomniac has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How safe is

Recently, deciding to do some improvements to RegexLab, I decided Safe be best employed, so I did a quick search on perlmonks and came accross

How to use LWP::Simpe inside a safe compartment? (unresolved - probably need to permit some network opcodes)
use Safe and CGI; (a nice little demo)
The proper use of Safe(lesson: lexicals ain't globals)
How Safe is Safe::? (warranty discussion - not related)
Known security issues with is right on topic, but there is no answer ( and my question is more to the comments of ask ).
Mileage with safe, Perl sandbox, Safe / @ISA Problem

Now I come accross is not safe in which ask says

By returning the right values from the safe compartment it's quite possibly to "break out" of it.
and someone in the cb said the same thing (Safe isn't truly safe), so can somebody explain to me why/how?

Code examples work best.


I am aware of Safe::Hole. I did search perlmonks for previous discussion ask mentions that discuss the insecurity of, but turned up nothing.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"
