Uhh, no use? -s accepts a netmask as well as addresses, it's not just
"add a bogus ip", I can effectively kick your machine off the network.
Apart from that the code looks very flimsy, I'll bet there's an
arbitrary command execution in there somewhere.

instead of beeing a smartass why dont you provide a better solution for the people who are annoyed by

Why dont you parse the output of lastb -i, dumbass.
