HTTP::Tiny::Paranoid - A safer HTTP::Tiny
# use just like HTTP::Tiny
my $response = HTTP::Tiny::Paranoid->new->get('http://example.com');
# block or whitelist specific hosts
# delegates to Net::DNS::Paranoid
This module is a subclass of HTTP::Tiny that performs exactly one additional function: before connecting, it passes the hostname to Net::DNS::Paranoid. If the hostname is rejected, then the request is aborted before a connect is even attempted.
By default, Net::DNS::Paranoid rejects connections to private network ranges. The blocklist & whitelist can be manipulated using the blocked_hosts and whitelisted_hosts class methods.
