Unix Tip #4619- November 3, 2017

KEEP THAT USER OUT!


Ever get into one of
those pesky admin wars
or need to keep the
developers off of your
system for a few minutes
without taking the system
to single user mode?

This nasty little script
will do the trick.

[root@foo /]# while true
> do
> kill -9 $(ps -aux |grep username | awk '{ print $2 }' )
> sleep 2
> done

This can make you the life
of the party (At work)
