    Hello,

    Is it possible to total disable Perl scripts on all users sites at once to avoid running perl shells? I have already disabled all cgi related options in default feature list.

    Isn't there anyway to disable perl? So how do you protect your servers from running shell scripts written in perl? All functions we disable in php are available in perl too.

    I know of a few possible methods however, I am going to leave this one to the cPanel staff.

    Any news on this problem? High security risk in Cpanel Servers. We don't want to allow the execution of Perl for all users.

    I will up this because I need answers too. How can I do that? My cpanel got some custom stuff and I am lost. Would it be better contacting my webhosting? Staff please get in!
