    how to search a perl script for backdoors?

    I just recently bought a perl shopping cart.

    How can I search it for any backdoors? Could I just search for ip addresses and web domains (which it could be calling home too)?

    Thanks for any advice you have!

    You'll need to study the code to learn and understand exactly what it does to know if it's insecure.

    If you're really concerned about its security and don't know how to fix it, then it might be best not to use it.
