When module is used with CGI version 4 or above the following warning is thrown: CGI::param called in list context from package HTML::FillInForm line 427, this can lead to vulnerabilities. See the warning in "Fetching the value or values of a single named parameter" at /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2/ line 437. I fixed by changing this to: my @v; if ($o->can('multi_param')) { @v = $o->multi_param($param); } else { @v = $o->param($param); } Though YMMV. Gareth -- Gareth Tunley -

Gareth, Looks like a good fix. I was the active maintainer of this module but am no longer working with Perl now due to a job change. The original maintainer, TJMATHER, will give final word on your patch. Mark
