   Yeah I know this is generally a bad idea (open script for running
   programs), but it's for some generic testing behind a firewall...
   more proof of concept than anything.

Crackers have been adding /bin/sh to /etc/inetd.conf for this purpose
for years... seems to have worked well for them :)
