[Zope] List of safe libraries
Fri, 26 Jul 2002 11:41:32 -0500
Actually, I was wondering if there is a "Master List" of libraries and
modules that one is authorized to import into a python script object.

It's a little fuzzy... what constitutes safe? Even without any additional
libraries, a clever coder can hang a Zope thread using just PythonScripts.
Regular expressions, for instance, are safe in that they won't let you write
to the filesystem or do other serious damage, but you can easily write a
regex that will never finish, hanging that Zope thread.
Can you be more specific about who will be allowed to write these scripts?
Semi-trusted internal users? Complete strangers?
