comment Prevent shell script inside image file
If you're looking for uploaded images to be displayed by web browsers, there are only a few formats that are acceptable. You probably have other constraints too, such as file size and image size. I would write a perl script to open the image and validate or reject it, but depending on your environment and expertise level, there may be something more suitable available to you.

any image reader that can be tricked into running a shell script is buggy.

Those are by definition buggy image readers, and should not be used. There was one famously widespread instance of such a buggy reader, but it ought to be long extinct. There are always new exploits discovered, but trusting you image reader is not unreasonable.

comment Bring your own phone to a (new) job: Consequences?
Some employers require that you will allow them to wipe the phone if they feel the need. For me, that would be a deal killer.
