that was not the question

the question is between using known unsecure software
where *every* input file could lead to code execution
or escape filenames

using *knowingly unsecure* software in environments
where users can submit input files is just stupid

you have two choices:

* update and find a solution for your needs
* don't offer a specific service if you can't do it secure
