CPAN Hacked!

[ #11349 ]

It figures, CPAN is one of the biggest reasons why Perl is so popular. Some idiot, probably a VB programmer had to throw in our face a somewhat embarassing relic from Perl's past. Forget that we have NMS now. So far no one I've talked to has an answer or a clue as to how this happened. I just hope the CPAN crew can figure out how it happened and stop it, as well as fix the page.

And look, just because you write "code" in some crippled language with no usable libraries doesn't mean you can come over here and screw with ours! This world is screwed up.
