Shell scripts are also blocked, perl scripts indeed run.

Did you try to run them via source? Or cating it into bash?

I think the bottom line is that mounting noexec does not protect you from a dedicated hacker. But it may protect against stupid automated attacks and may buy you the time you need to dicover intrusion attempts.

If you really want to control what kind of files can be executed you'll have to use tools like LIDS or RSBAC.
