Python MOTD Challenge

Exploit the way this script operates to get a shell.

I used Geany to view and run it.

It is supposed to be a script that is used to set a message of the day once every 24 hours.

Have a play around.

EDIT: It can be done by editing the source but the idea is to get the shell by exploiting it as is.
