Forum Thread: Why Elliot Needs to "Wipe Out"?

I hope you're all done with mr.robot season 1. So am I. But one thing still I don't know why Elliot needs to wipe out? In episode 1, Elliot hacks Tyrell Wellick's accounts and he afraid's that Tyrell let him hack, So he disconnected all Ethernet, power cables and took out RAM's and he burned up with microwave!..So my question is why he need to do that?

I dont exactly know, but he made a big hack and if the FBI knew they could search his computers and stuff and afaik some data stays in the ram ( there's a ram cleaning mode on ParrotOS) but yeah thats why

(Maybe the) First rule in hacking: Always have a self-destruct button. In case cops, feds, Interpol somehow managed to seize your machines, destroying its HDD, RAM, blah blah blah will prevent them from forensic recovery, which also prevent them from acusing you for cybercriminal activity
