Still a cgi-security hole in DNSTools (1.10)

Hi,

following the notice about Version 1.08 of Dnstools
I looked into the new version (1.10) that is currently
downloadable on dnstools.com.
It still contains a sedurity bug by not parsing input-values.

Details:
I saw the author improved the script by entering the subroutine
        ParseForSecurity().
There the input-values are parsed with the line
        $parse_data=~s/[;`\*&]//g;

But It's still possible to insert 'dangerous' chars by using a
hexadecimal strings, like within x00-x20.

Bugfix:
My advise would be to make an inverse parsing:
Delete everything, that is not allowed.
Like this:
        $parse_data=~s/[^a-zA-Z0-9\-_\.]//g;

The author was informed today at 13:55 MET and
he answered at 16:05 MET that he will fix the problem
in time.

Ciao,
  Wolfgang
