some hosts provide SSH access on their shared hosting plans & some 
provide it
for reseller accounts. but I don't think that would cut it though, since 
it requires
fiddeling with the server's firewall rules & that won't be allowed & 
even if you manage
to do it, its a likely bet that you'll be kicked out by your host pretty 
soon after
your feat!! ;)

This has

Bad Behavior does something similar, but instead of redirecting to a 403 
its simply uses the die() I think!!
