Quoth mount(8): noexec Do not allow execution of any binaries on the mounted file system. This option is useful for a server that has file systems containing binaries for architectures other than its own. Note: This option was not designed as a security feature and no guarantee is made that it will prevent malicious code execution; for example, it is still possible to execute scripts which reside on a noexec mounted partition. Mounting /tmp as noexec causes perfectly good code to gratuitously fail, while providing no real security improvement.
