Lack of interest base64_decode blocker?

I was just reading about the unfortunate hacking incident with mybb that took place. I know they are not alone in the sense that many forum owners, running on a variety of platforms, have been subjected to similar exploits.

While such vulnerabilities (especially ones created through add on's) cannot be entirely solved through the core product -- I am wondering if there is value for a method in the core xenforo system to block the base64 codes from running?

If not, can a separate option be added to the file integrity system to quickly identify areas that have possibly malicious code like base64?
