54. Self-destruct mechanisms ... where iz they?

"Self-destruct mechanisms are sometimes employed to prevent an apparatus or information from being used by unauthorised persons in the event that it is lost or stolen. For example they may be found in high-security data storage devices (e.g: Ironkey), where it is important for the data to be destroyed to prevent compromise."

But, who knows what's really going on.

How'd they get Stuxnet 'under the radar'?
A common trick, I hear, I have no interest in this myself,
is to leave an infected thumbdrive just laying around for someone to use.
