  • Revitalizing CPAN::Audit
    2 projects | /r/perl | 10 Jun 2022
    In 2018, Viacheslav Tykhanovskyi (VTI) created CPAN::Audit, a program to compare your installed Perl modules against a list of security notices. A couple months ago, a friend asked me about the module and I thought it sounded interesting. I volunteered to update it, so Renée Bäcker and I did just that. Even the most green Perl developer can help too.

    /u/briandfoy also says: "We've revitalized CPAN::Audit. It's a tool that can scan your installed modules for known security issues. It's all at cpan-audit. Along with that, I'm soliciting people to sign the keys that I use to sign the data that we distribute. Since this is security software, we want people to trust the data that we are giving them. Just follow the instructions."
