Wipe/shred/nuke a living server

WIP. Only tested on Debian 7.x
# script used to chroot/pivot a live system on tmpfs in order to wipe it
# only tested with Debian 7.11
# first copy and execute it:
# scp pivotroot.sh root@<remote_host>:/tmp/
# ssh root@<remote_host> bash /tmp/pivotroot.sh
# you will then be able to connect again to it on port 666 (change it if you like) and do what you want
# note: bash is the default shell under debian so there will be bashisms (don't run it with Bourne shell)
