During CIC we saw some great conversations with, and across, the community. There was enthusiasm, lots of engagement and feedback, and positive suggestions about the future of Perl and Raku. Our network is complex and at the moment everyone talks to everyone, it is disorganised, and there’s potential for great

  • Malicious Code Found in CPAN Package Module-AutoLoad Tue, 28-Jul-2020 by Dave Rolsky

    The Module-AutoLoad distribution has been found to contain malicious code in its test suite. Specifically, it attempts to load and execute Perl code from a remote server during the test suite.
