    Well, and just forbid the cp command on only one directory?

    If cp is blocked then there would be tar and the others mentioned above.

    tar cf - /bin/cp | (cd /tmp/; tar xf -);
    sudo /tmp/bin/cp a b

    I'm not sure if there are infinite combinations but it approaches infinity.

    The one way that does work is to make a list of the allowed applications.
