HDD kill util

Question for the

I ran across and old utility about 6 months ago that would permanetly destory data or make the HDD unusable. It did this within approximately 5 seconds.It was simular to KILDISK but that is justa low level formatter. This util basically trashed your HDD. It worked a the BOIS level like B-n-N.
Does anyone know what it is?????  I looked through my CEH lab files and was not able to find it. This util is NOT atoy for it will permantely trash a HDD.  Thanks for the info.

Re: HDD kill util

Nope. That what I thought it was but it is not.... I remember it from CEH material and looked at it but have never got around to dumping my disks. Now I need to blank some disk... Without using my Black-NDecker drill...  ;)

I am using DBAN (B-n-N)... The file I was looking very simular to HDKP that bsically first dumped the MBR and wrote to every block. Then ran a script that cause disk thrashing until it broke......

Thanks for your help....  But Boot-N-Nuke will work.

I'm taking a CEH boot camp next week. I have the Official EC-Council books and CDs. As I'm going through the material, I'll keep my eye out for that util.

That one is surely not the ultimate HDD kill utility. It's just a batch file trying to format the harddrives (all virus scanners should recognize it)

From the original website:
The program, once executed, will start eating up the hard drive, and/or infect and reboot the hard drive within a few seconds. After rebooting, all hard drives attached to the system would be  formatted (in an unrecoverable manner) within only 1 to 2 seconds, irregardless of the size of the hard drive.


That's complete nonsens. If you really want to delete data by means of a software you'll have to overwrite it several times - and that will need in any case a lot more time than a few seconds if you consider the size of an actual harddrive.
