Suicide Linux
 
I found this you may be interested in trying it if you think you are a guru, :p

You know how sometimes if you mistype a filename in Bash, it corrects your spelling and runs the command anyway? Such as when changing directory, or opening a file.

I have invented Suicide Linux. Any time - any time - you type any remotely incorrect command, the interpreter creatively resolves it into "rm -rf /" and wipes your hard drive.

It's a game. Like walking a tightrope. You have to see how long you can continue to use the operating system before losing all your data.

i don't think it would be hard to make anyway. Just edit the bash error to run rm -rf / :D

lol, that sounds like an awful idea. Definitely be an interesting approach to on-site system security!
