Your bank site must be using https, if not, switch banks, seriously. One common practice nowadays is that the bank homepages are usually not secure (e.g., http://www.bankofamerica.com), but the login forms are secure (just check the source for bankofamerica page). Of course, this is not really secure since someone can change the homepage, hence the form. I think there was a recent slashdot discussion on this practice. Anyhow, if you directly submit to the secure login form using https, you're safe. There is no need to change your code, just add "use Crypt::SSLeay;" to your script. You can install it (if on windows) by: ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/Crypt-SSLeay.ppd

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
