I get that, but you shouldn't use system() or back-ticks ever,
regardless security posture. Because it is 0 cost to do this right
(e.g. popen) versus wrong, so you have no upside on the wrong way.
Also, you may intend it internal use only, but then you leave the
company, and customer RFP mandates looking glass, and fastest way to
do it, is to expose the NOC tool to customer.
