in reply to Perl Security Testing

"...a normal or guest user on your machine, with access to Perl scripts..."

My 2 ¢: A guest/user with access to my machine was considered as a severe security risk in the company i was with. It was strictly verboten. We were advised to log out always. No open terminals with root access, no papers with passwords on the desk etc. Many attacks etc. are internal. Not a Perl problem. But in daily business things look a bit different. It's not very convenient to be so strict. And that's the real problem.

Best regards, Karl
