Disallows potentially unsafe shell characters.

Functionally similar to PHPMailer::isShellSafe() which resulted from CVE-2016-10045. Note that escapeshellarg and escapeshellcmd are inadequate for this purpose.

@todo Rename to ::isShellSafe() and/or discuss whether this is the correct location for this helper.

Parameters

string $string: The string to be validated.

Return value

bool: True if the string is shell-safe.
