Not too many years ago someone wrote a wrapper to check for excessively
long arguments, environment variables, etc. to be used as a front end
wrapper for some other vulnerable program (ps??).

Does anyone have some handy code that would do the same thing to protect
login whilst we await vendor solutions?
