Uh, have you taken a casual look at the source code? It calls a "print" function on some strings -- the only way it could exec 'rm -f $HOME' is if it's somehow buffer overruning that print function, or something similar. The only thing you can't tell from a casual glance at the source code is *what* it's printing. Obviously, if you don't bother looking at the source code *at all*, it's another matter.
