it was not meant as a joke. I have no idea what attack vector you use
but "home exploits" via evil hidden folder are kind of non existing.
Thats the kind of attack that happens when people dont understand how IT
security works. Because no one cares about a hidden folder. If someone
gets write access to your home directory you have far bitter problems
that a hidden rm -rf / file.

Exploits usually happen on a deeper level than hidden folders.
