If you are using a perl earlier than 5.18, it is highly likely that your CGI scripts are vulnerable to algorithmic complexity attacks via hash keys

Interesting and worrying that many shared hosting providers use Perl 5.16.x

    CentOS 7, perchance? They only have another year of O/S support in that case so you'll get something slightly newer in a while. Also note that RH have been known to ship patched versions of key applications without bumping internal version numbers and this might (might!) apply to perl.

    Anyway, all of our customers on shared hosting are on 5.34 now. Msg me if you are thinking of moving.
