What does this actually do and will it literally destroy your computer?

Those “numbers” you didn’t know how to tamper with, I tampered with: https://repl.it/@StudentFires/FileNuker, It’s far more readable now.

The code made literally no sense, after heavily debugging your code I realized that most of it was useless. the for loop should’ve just contained the file >> file_text, the rest of it happened when the loop ended.


Btw, this ate up a full Gigabyte of my Repl storage, luckily I’m on the Hacker plan.
By targeting non-existent files, it required memory.

I crashed when using const auto nuke_text = std::string(2e9, ' ');, but it should effectively delete any file, that or system("rm "+userInput)

I thought I knew how to destroy other people's reps, but I failed. If this worked this'd be pretty cool.


Tampering w/ the numbers, can't these be changed?

Convert if (i % 2030900 == 0) to if (!(i & 2030899))

rand() % 4 to rand() & 3

@StudentFires I menat tampering with the for statement, when I was messing around with the numbers, it lagged my potato laptop so much, it gave me a Memory ManagementBSOD

TehEpicCoder (7)

Ummm, I am pretty sure this is malware, which I am pretty sure that is against repl.it tos

@EthanCulp2 I don't think this is malware, it is more of a proof-of-concept.

I'm scared, I don't wanna run it
