I'm not sure bash was ever intended to be involved in web facing applications. That's not what it's for! Once you go down that road, even indirectly, there's a lot that can go wrong.

Maybe next someone will run arbitrary user input from the web through g++, execute it in ring 0, and call it a security hole?

Ah. So you've heard of systemd?

Dun, dun, dun, tsss. Is it getting hot in here?

In a perfect world, people would be polite and ASK if they could take photos of you or your property. But in this reality, people can do whatever they want without thinking about anyone else. Empathy is frowned upon. It's mine and I want it NOW NOW NOW. Wah! he's not letting me do whatever I want to! What an asshole!
