Okay. I have looked at each of those. I guess, I am safe from these, because I don't run third-party code. I try to stay away from that as much as possible. If some program is large and I don't have time to review it, I won't execute it. But as far I am concerned, I don't plan on using a backdoor like putting heredoc at the end of my perl script to try to read someone's memory contents. I try to write useful and safe scripts not use weird tactics to try to break someone's computer or hack into it. I am not a hacker. But see, that's why YOU should upgrade to a more recent version of Perl. I don't have to. As someone who writes and executes his own code, I don't feel like I am in any danger.

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.
