        Based (and improved on): https://github.com/Frichetten/CVE-2020-11108-PoC/blob/master/cve-2020-11108-rce.py
        File name CVE-2020-11108.py
        written by tijl[dot]deneut[at]howest[dot]be for www.ic4.be
        ## Vulnerable setup instructions (from clean Debian 10-Buster):
        > apt update && apt install -y curl
        > curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash
        > pihole checkout web release/v4.3.3
        > cd /etc/.pihole/ && git checkout v4.4
        > pihole -r ## Select reconfigure
        This is a native implementation without requirements, written in Python 3.
        Works equally well on Windows as Linux (as MacOS, probably ;-)
        * Does a reliable check before exploitation (not based on version numbers)
        * Performs normal RCE without Privilege Escalation (wich is more trust worthy)
        * Asks before running Root RCE (as this overwrites certain files)
        * Performs a cleanup in all cases (success / failure)
