This reminds me of Depinguinator
I’ve put together some code for building a FreeBSD disk image which will boot into memory, configure the network, set a root password, and enable SSH. This can be used to “depenguinate” a Linux box, without requiring any access beyond a network connection.
This is interesting but does anyone understand what busybox and the fakeinit.c do?
busybox provides the functionality of many common unix tools in a single executable. It’s super tiny which makes it great for embedded development. Or sneaking onto someone else’s Linux system, apparently.
