in thread How to Post s Comment in Perl?

I could see a valid use for such a script.. An internal website where a status of some operation is posted. It would be handy if you were say, backing up a 3TB database and getting a notification of X many GB successfully written to tape/disk.

There could be other valid reasons.. but nothing comes to my caffeine addicted brain.

    Many of us will have written a program to automate something at one stage, obviously there are valid reasons for doing such things. From the wording of this post I don't think this is one of them.


    By this I mean the message text "Perl Exploit WORKED BABE!", the email "", it just looks typical of (in this case wanna be) script kiddie nonsense.

    Minus the fact that it has "Perl exploit" blatantly included in the POST data.
