After looking around on a Solaris box for a bit, I've also come to the unfortunate conclusion that there isn't really anything you can do. There seems to be no trace of the actual command typed anywhere. ps reports the pid as running /usr/bin/perl -w /dev/fd/4, and the lack of a decent /proc system on Solaris is also a dead end. If you are forced to pick, the latter of the two choices above sounds like a safer bet... always better to not have to deal with taint-checking of any external variables in a program, especially an suid one.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
