in thread Password hacker killer

Yes, thanks for pointing that out. It would therefore be logical to block the IP instead of the user for the same time period, or better yet block the combination of user/IP.

    this does not work, most of the automated cracking tools will use huge proxy lists to change the source IP of the attack after X attempts. You chase your own tail by limiting the user/ip block.

[choroba]: Related to the new release, anyone could explain this or this tester report?
[Discipulus]: hello crew! marto thanks for the message: but I how can I help? i'm testing cpan Padre atm problem with Client::Debug
[choroba]: I don't happen to have 5.10.0 nor 5.8.5 handy...
[Corion]: Hmm - I would say the 5.8.5 is a broken installation / corrupt tarball download, and the 5.10.0 is really weird, and maybe a bug in that version of Perl
[Corion]: I don't see how my $result = eval q{'abc' =~ ?b?}; could create a "Modification of read-only value" error
[marto]: Discipulus the issue that should be adressed is that the page needs to be updated to reflect modern perl on Windows
[Discipulus]: but is really necessary to support these ancient versions? from 5.14 onward is not enough?
[Discipulus]: yes marto I understood
[Corion]: Discipulus: I'm slowly migrating my code to require 5.8.x ;) Most of my code works on 5.6, but Filter::signatures requires 5.10 I think
