Thank you! I understand the security risks. These commands will be executed by the logged in user with his/her privileges. I will keep security in memory when attempting to deploy this in scale.

    Please don't deploy this. It's so ... evil.

    Tell us what you want to achieve. I'm pretty sure there are solutions where you don't have to sell your soul.

    Security will, indeed, be but a memory, and a faint one at that.

      Your response made me laugh during a meeting. Thank you for that. :-)

[marto]: running late today, get to work and people are just sitting around. "can't delete file, quota exceeded"
[Corion]: marto: Oy :-/
[Corion]: Ah, it's only "quota exceeded", not "filesystem full", so it's "merely" an administrative act to up the FS quota resp. inode quota
[Corion]: I've been on databases where I couldn't drop a table or delete rows because the DB was full. Not so much fun...
[marto]: meh, the admins are lazy, I just piped null to some old large log files, problem solved
