Subject: Minor bug in rmtree with newlines in CWD
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 479b
It looks like the untaint line in sub rmtree needs a /s flag adding, ie for ($arg->{cwd}) { /\A(.*)\Z/; $_ = $1 } # untaint should be changed to for ($arg->{cwd}) { /\A(.*)\Z/s; $_ = $1 } # untaint Else weird things happen if the CWD has a newline in it ($arg->{cwd} will be set to $1, which will be set from any previous regex match, since the /\A(.*)\Z/ match will fail). This usually results in rmtree incorrectly failing with a weird "cannot stat" error message. David
