NTP users are strongly urged to take immediate action to ensure that their NTP daemons are not susceptible to being used in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Please also take this opportunity to defeat denial-of-service attacks by implementing Ingress and Egress filtering through BCP38.

ntp-4.2.8p15 was released on 23 June 2020. It addresses 1 medium-severity security issue in ntpd, and provides 13 non-security bugfixes over 4.2.8p13.

Please see the NTP Security Notice for vulnerability and mitigation details.

Are you using Autokey in production? If so, please contact Harlan - he's got some questions for you.

Package ==

=head1 NAME

CGI::Session::Driver::db_file - CGI::Session driver for BerkeleyDB using DB_File


$s = new CGI::Session("driver:db_file", $sid); $s = new CGI::Session("driver:db_file", $sid, {FileName=>'/tmp/cgisessions.db'});


B stores session data in BerkelyDB file using L<DB_File|DB_File> - Perl module. All sessions will be stored in a single file, specified in I driver argument as in the above example. If I isn't given, defaults to F</tmp/cgisess.db>, or its equivalent on a non-UNIX system.

If the directory hierarchy leading to the file does not exist, will be created for you.

This module takes a B option which will be used if DB_File has to create the database file for you. By default the umask is 0660.


For support and licensing information see L<CGI::Session|CGI::Session>
