sounds not like something I would implement. And you don't give much
context to your situation.
What do you like to prevent? Stop users with root-shells to execut
arbitary shell scripts obtained by curl?
It's a common idiocy we (sysadmins) face in the web world: programmers need
"something" and find a tutorial which instructs them to download some bundle
which self-installs via the infamous mantra under discussion in this thread. Obviously
preceded by a sudo (because why not ?)
