A "rm monkey" is a specific form of computer hacker, one who delights in hacking into a computer system and deleting everything on it. The items deleted don't have to be important or necessary; to a rm monkey, successful hacking is like a fire sale: everything must go.

This name comes from the *nix command "rm," which removes a file/folder/etc from a computer. The particular comman that rm monkeys enjoy is "rm -rf *", which recursively destroys every single file on a computer, until something really important/essential is deleted and the sysem can no longer function.
