i'm using perlfect happily, but since mr. Guninski posted a common bug to
bugtraq about a week ago, i'm not too happy anymore:
try a search like
against any perlfect-site and receive the user's cookies in an alert-window.
easy to exploit e.g. for sites with ecommerce or bulletinboards (ubb & mwf,
any chances to fix this?
following Guninski's original Bugtraq-Post (ibm seems to use perlfect too...):
