Hi Mauricio,

  What exactly is the concern?  Whether they can execute it from
a browser, or from the command line, would seem irrelevent.

  You say they are executing it as the group 'others'?  Not in a usual
apache installation.  Normally apache would execute it as its user
or group which varies from installation to installation, but user nobody
and group nobody are common.
