A remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass perl Taint mode protection mechanism via specially-crafted input provided to the HTML form. Note: Hopefully Damyan, Mark can clarify here, if valid data from Data-FormValidator are automatically marked as untainted for perl Taint mode or not. If there still is perl Taint mode protection check present, even on valid Data-FormValidator data and it couldn't happen, that tainted data would be passed further to the script processing, then this is not a security issue.
