Perl module to update Class::DBI data using CGI::Untaint
Lots of times, Class::DBI is used in web-based applications. (In fact, coupled with a templating system that allows you to pass objects, such as Template::Toolkit, Class::DBI is very much your friend for these.)
One of the most irritating things about writing web-based applications is the monotony of writing much of the same stuff over and over again. And, where there's monotony there's a tendency to skip over stuff that is really important, but is a pain to write - like Taint Checking and sensible input validation. (Especially as you can still show a 'working' application without it!). CGI::Untaint can take care of a lot of that for us.
It so happens that CGI::Untaint also plays well with Class::DBI. All you need to do is to 'use Class::DBI::FromCGI' in your class (or in your local Class::DBI subclass that all your other classes inherit from. You do that, don't you?).
