Another rm -rf /

There was rm -rf /, this is another one.

perl -e '_(qw|JUNK rm -rf /|);sub _{shift&&&_&&system @_}'

Update: it looks much better like this:

perl -e 'sub _ {shift&&&_&&system@_} _ qw|JUNK rm -rf /|'

For best results, run as root :)

P.S: It is totally safe to run this, although I take no responsibility for whatever happens after that.

    Does it do something?

      Yes: apparently, it confuses people into downvoting it as malicious code. ;-)

    I upvoted this node and was very surprised to see the reputation at -11. Would the downvoters care to share their reasoning?

    Update: here's a hint:
