what are these hardware busters they use to break it ?

Kind of unusual request, and I know it sounds like Hollywood esque, but anyone here now of these little buster things you attach on the motherboard meant to purposely destroy the hardware in case it’s stolen/compromised ?

I know this stuff exist and it’s sometimes referenced on the cybersec community, I’m kinda curious to know if they have a name, and if it’s like even legal to have one of these installed.

Try not to hate me if that sounds noobish.



USB killers? Thumbsticks that fry anything you plug then into. I remember on Mr Robot, Romero had his USB port rigged so that if anyone plugged something it it would fry his mobo. Not sure the best way to go about this.
