Put this in your Wordpress Constructor, or in your theme header, or somewhere where it will get executed relatively frequently.

      $message=shell_exec("/home/user/test 2>&1");

This is the bash script.

    echo -ne '\a'

Note: many different things will cause this not to work. I heard about somebody doing this as a joke, I'm not 100% sure how they implemented this "functionality." The "victim" was not happy when they figured it out.
