Terminal escape injection techniques

It’s interesting in that shell scripts (small one’s) seem just like friendly bits of code that you can run. That’s not always the case, it’s probably never a good idea to just download a script and run it (esp using curl or wget). I discovered this very interesting article the other day about terminal escape injection and it works on pretty much every platform – mac, windows linux and even within python!

When in dought use cat -v in fact cat -v may be my new default for viewing code!
