Source code of scripts in my cgi-bin directory: Can it be seen?
I have a sub-directory called SmartScripts in my cgi-bin directory.
I plan to have some Perl scripts in cgi-bin/SmartScripts for processing forms on my web site. Will a clever Internet user be able to view the source code of these scripts?
Of course, security best practices dictate that I don't have passwords or any other highly sensitive data in the scripts. I just want to know if someone can see what's in the scripts.
If so, is there a way I can modify permissions to prevent this, while still allowing the scripts to be executed from my HTML forms?
Thanks for any light you can shed, Scott
