Update file from a given wrapper

Hello Friends,

I am trying to generate a status file which will be updated when users run a given shell wrapper.

Above is pretty straight forward.

Since the program is open to all users, the status file should have open access for all.
That has the inherent loop hole of anybody modifying it externally as well.

Looking to restrict the status file to get updates when run only from the given program.
All options welcome.

Thanks in advance.
