    If I compile that with Easy Apache, what security implications does that bring to the table in a shared hosting environment.

    Mod_perl has never been a threat in shared environment. Instead it is used as a security measure for different attacks on the servers. You just need to be aware as to what applications and softwares your client use. It should not conflict with the current websites on your shared server.

    Hi

    mod_perl not only boosts up the apache's performance but also helps to increase your site's security. mod_perl scripts always run under the user and group IDs of the httpd process and I believe that it is a good choice to enable mod_perl(for server optimization especially) but as mod_perl does not directly concern itself with potential security issues, I will recommend mod_security for you to use for security implications.
