  There is still a server misconfiguration.  If someone can pull the
raw perl source code of any cgi's that run on your server something=20
is seriously broken because if people can actually read the source to=20
your CGI's regardless of language you have got to be *MUCH* more=20
careful about security in them.

  You should get apache configured so that /cfmx/home/ requests for=20
*.pl are also considered CGIs and are run correctly. =20

  Depending on the setup it might be as simple as adding ExecCGI to=20
the <Directory> directive... but there are a few ways to do this.
