Security Question about php exec and other similar functions
Hi everyone, noob question here, how safe is it to enable the php exec or similar functions in a hosting environment? Would you guys be kind enough to tell me whether you do or don't? If it is enabled, would it mean that processes running under a specific user can hack or root the linux box itself? What's your take on this?
