Protect your Perl script from common security issues

Mohammad Anwar — 45 minutes 🐪

Over the years, I have seen how some features of Perl have been misused. We, developers, at times don't think about it and only find out when it is too late. The most common issue of trusting the user input. Under no circumstance, we can trust user input, it has to go through security checks before you can use it. Similarly, there is another issue of inappropriate use of system() and many more such issues we will discuss.
