Remote control / self-destruct attempt #2

Published on . Takes less than 1 minute to read.

I took another crack at my geeky idea - creating a remotely activated self destruct script. (Python / shell)

How it works: SMS -> PHP controller script with my message in GET request -> Message stored in file -> Periodic controller script running in PC -> if file contains something, execute and reset it.

The "Self destruct" isn't quite fancy, basically it just wipes the MBR.
