Securing your code

Perl is a delightfully flexible language, with many ways to complete any task. Unfortunately, while many of these ways work perfectly in ideal circumstances, some may include nasty security holes.

While many of these security issues are usually well understood (such as giving user input to two-argument open without specifying a file mode), others are less obvious.

This talk will take you on a whirlwind tour of security issues in Perl and how to avoid them. An understanding of these issues will be of benefit for beginners through to immediate programmers.
