Script to self destruct a linux box...



[1st off, my intentions are not malicious!]

I want to have a Linux (RH 9) sytstem automatically
rendered usless at a  certain date or time.

I'd also like to wipe out /home, /usr,  logs, etc...
And then reboot, but of course if things go ok, it
should be toast after the reboot.

I imagine I could create cron job that executes on
such & such day & does something like:

/bin/rm -rf /home
/bin/rm -rf /var
/bin/rm -rf /usr
/bin/rm -rf /boot
/sbin/init 0

Would that work?
Is there is a better way to do this.

Ideal setup will wipe the major useful parts of drive,
reboot the system & just hang, rendered useless.
