I don't know whether you are early in your career or an experienced ninja. But one advice which I would like to give all of you is don't dive into fan-boyism. Often, it is useless and no one really cares in the bigger scenario.

So python, perl,ruby,java etc .. they have their own positives and negatives. No use would come pointing out which one is good or which one you like.Because, the scenario is different in each situation and you have to use different options and get out of your comfort zone.
Same for people drooling over Linux Vs Windows.

A true hacker/cyber-security-expert doesn't care what scenario/platform/language he has to use. He just finds the shortest and easiest path in each scenario.Hacks.And walk away with the girl ... oops... money (whatever :p) !!

+1 on Fanboyism
Been there done that.

And just like abhay said this field requires you to be master of one but jack of all so you have one as your best but you can still work with what ever is thrown in front of you.

Python is powerful than Perl, and it is easy for peaple who's not familiar with programming language

perl for Text , socket processing (i.e. Exploiting,backdoor,...) and shell
python for fuzzing and combine low level programming with scripting

both of them is usefull....

While they can do pretty much the same things and both have excellent third party libraries, I would definitely recommend python over perl, especially for beginners.
