# Pi-hole <= 4.4 RCE
# Author: Nick Frichette
# Homepage: https://frichetten.com
#
# Note: This exploit must be run with root privileges and port 80 must not be occupied.
#       While it is possible to exploit this from a non standard port, for the sake of 
#       simplicity (and not having to modify the payload) please run it with sudo privileges.
#       Or setup socat and route it through there?
