Examiner reports on self-destruct option for hard drives, and on Mac botnet (unclear if part of Bash)

There is now a hard drive that you can set up to self-destruct, with a text message, as explained in a story on The Examiner, link with video here.  It is a 128 gig drive.

The Examiner is also reporting a vicious Mac Malware botnet called “Mac.BackDoor.iWorm” which somehow leverages upon Reddit, story here. It is not complexly clear right now if this is related to the “Bash Bug” (Sept 25).
