Destructive one word unix commands

Hi I'm trying to hack a web server as part of an assignment and have gotten it to exec commands but I cannot pass commands arguments as the program splits up space separated words and only execs the first one. Is there anything I can pass to cause any sort of damage in one word? Btw webserver runs as root.

Also is it possible to host a script and just pass the location of that to the web server? Eg &_cmd=

Would that work?

We don't support hacking here. If this is an assignment (I'm assuming homework) then this is the wrong forum. Please repost in the homework forum, there is a template you fill out first.
