StaticMethod untaintUnchecked ($string) -> $untainted
Untaints $string without any checks (dangerous). If $string is
undefined, return undef.
The intent is to use this routine to be able to find all untainting
places using grep.
StaticMethod normalizeFileName ($string) -> $filename
Errors out if $string contains filtered characters.
The returned string is not tainted, but it may contain shell
metacharacters and even control characters.
StaticMethod sanitizeAttachmentName ($fname) -> ($fileName,$origName)
Given a file name received in a query parameter, sanitise it. Returns
the sanitised name together with the basename before sanitisation.
Sanitisation includes filtering illegal characters and mapping client
file names to legal server names.
ObjectMethod sysCommand ($template,@params) -> ($data,$exit)
Invokes the program described by $template
and @params, and returns the output of the program and an exit code.
STDOUT is returned. STDERR is THROWN AWAY.
The caller has to ensure that the invoked program does not react in a
harmful way to the passed arguments. sysCommand merely
ensures that the shell does not interpret any of the passed arguments.
