Perl Shel

http://forums.cpanel.net – Hello there, I have a security question. All we disable some dangerous function in PHP ti avoid running of PHP shells. As cPanel uses perl for all its tasks and al of PHP's dangeros functions have equivalents in perl, so someone can easily port a pho shell to perl and simply run it on the server. Disabling any function in perl will result in cPanel's many parts to stop working. How do you manage this security issue? Is it possible to restrict use of these functions in perl to specific users or user groups? All the best. (HowTos)
