AFAIK yes, by default, if you backtick to open a shell command, but not if you use shell_exec().

And, incidentally, neither of which you should be doing in the first place on any publicly facing web server. They've both generally been considered bad practice for scalability as well as security concerns since long before this particular BASH vulnerability got a buzzword name.

Also, don't run your webserver as root.

Don't call it a "dashboard" because they think that just because its packaged differently and called something else it must not therefore be what they want. Call it "Realtime Reporting" and be done with it. Its not, strictly speaking, realitime, but that matters very little; its not strictly speaking a dashboard either.

You're missing the reality of the situation. They already have a place to dump it; pretty much anywhere you go in Seattle there are *three* (not two like in Los Angeles) different "trash" bins. One is for recycleables, one is for compostable waste, and one is for non-recycleable, non-compostable waste. This isn't about making it illegal for people to get rid of too much uneaten food, its just about creating a law to make using the right bin for it enforceable. They already did it for the recycleables almost a decade ago.

While I'd love to imagine the hilarity that would ensue if Russia were to attempt to completely disconnect the internet in order to run their own entirely isolated private one, I doubt this is in reality what would happen. Even if they managed to keep most or all of their population from getting traffic from international social/news networks in, I have the sneaking suspicion that somehow the SPAM would still find its way out.

In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables.
