apache cgi script /dev/stdin
I'm writing a number of CGI scripts and applications that use /dev/stdin to pipe their input from an html form using the post method. I'm under the impression that since post uses stdin instead of an environment variable it can handle data streams more efficiently than the get method.
Are there any known buffer over-runs, exploits, or other liabilities that I should be aware of when using this method (not including whatever my scripts and apps are up to of course)? Any advice will be much appreciated.
