Re: Script to self destruct a linux box...

Not malicious??? Could you provide an example where this wouldn't be malicious
and still somehow be useful? ;-)

Quoting jg <jg573 yahoo com>:

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

*> I'd also like to wipe out /home, /usr,  logs, etc...

*> /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.
