That could be every command, just depends on who's doing it and if it's the desired command. Perhaps taking precautions first (like reading the man pages if you using a unfamiliar flag, etc) is your first step. But if you want a list of every command that is dangerous, well, just tab twice at any command line to get a list of all the executable's in your path and just consider them all dangerous if you don't know what your doing.

Please read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature.

Asking people to look things up for you and feed you links is fairly rude. Please show some effort of your own.

was just going to post somthing similar, 'can you ...' would be nice, 'please can you ...' would be better, some people are just downright rude and lazy and don't deserve to be helped until they change their attitude a bit.

Welcome to a site where you can learn dangerous commands, especially when you are logged in as root.

There are no dangerous commands in Linux.
There are dangerous users.

Hi,
Welcome to LQ!

You should learn to understand the command line(cli) so you will be prepared to use commands properly. You can always do a 'man command' to learn the operations of a particular command with the options to use that will get the desired effect.

I do suggest that you can look at the following, especially Rute;

Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding;


1 Linux Documentation Project
2
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
3
Linux Command Guide
4
Bash Beginners Guide
5
Bash Reference Manual
6
Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
7
Linux Newbie Admin Guide
8
LinuxSelfHelp
9
Utimate Linux Newbie Guide

The above links and others can be found at '
Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

For entertainment in the High School cafeteria, I once told tales of a command, shred. Type
Code:
shred  something
to overwrite something - a disk, partition, or file - with zeros or random digits several times over. You'll destroy data and make it unrecoverable.
