The attached file #12170 (`EXECSERVERS.mbox') contains emails about those security concerns.

The `exec' server should honor the `EXECSERVERS' environment variable to allow using other `exec' servers than the system's default one.

The code is there (in `S_exec_exec' in `exec/exec.c'), but currently (since 1995) ``if 0''ed out, because of security concerns that have to be evaluated first.
