I've re-pro'd this report from irc, using my debian woody vm - the user also said they had the sime error on 5.8.0, and would be unable to upgrade in either case

the problem line 1180 is:

    foreach (<$tmpDir/$name.*>) {

Is there anything else special about this setup? I don't get this problem.

Name comes from the secret - in this case 'SvenDowideit.7954' its 'SvenDowideit'.

I guess we'd need to apply a regex filter to untaint it. I don't know what the accepted approach is nowaday - stripping out the usual gang of suspects using Sandbox?

Untaint as soon as possible (immediately after reading the string and verifying it is valid is best). Use Sandbox:untaintUnchecked to untaint it. CC

i love the idea of untainting the * in name.*

Martin - the version of perl is what's special frown


and now i can't reproduce it anymore - but its lead to a few new things -- SD
