separate secure system will do the trick currrently, but that will change
in time as many drive firmware updates are not properly protected in
hardware (no digital signatures etc). Sad to say but its only because the
spammers are interested in abusing machines not destroying them that
there are almost no machine destructing worms out there.
The bigger problem is recovering the content of the drive - which files,
emails, other random bits on the disk contain stuff that will re-infect
the machine - rapidly gets harder than trying to find escaped springs
while dismantling a Z scale loco ...
