I heard many years ago from word of mouth that this kind of malware exists, which could for example blow up capacitors in your PC.
Has such malware or something even remotely similar ever existed?
How do you technically detect such malware (if it already exists)?
How is it called?
Isn't it kind of unrealistic to have such malware due to the different kinds of hardware in PCs/Servers/etc?
- If it's not fictional then how do the safeguards protect against such threats and what about the fact that the safeguards would have loopholes?
