Dear Forum,

I am a new member here, but I use Singular with lots of joy since last year. I recently created SingularWebService (code.google.com/p/singularws/) to make it possible to run Singular commands remotely via HTTP, primarily for using it with GeoGebra (geogebra.org).

Today I learned that the
Code:
system("sh",...)
command may be a security hole in SingularWS. Thus I added the
Code:
--no-shell
command line option at github.com/kovzol/Sources/commit/9442e1298e604074c4cbc5643a8d965f59939b93 to prevent entering arbitrary shell command remotely. (SingularWebService is an anonymous service.)

If my change is acceptable for the developers, I would be happy if you could merge this enhancement to the official version.

Thank you and best regards,
