Looks like pseudocode to be honest, that is code that is kind of a plan of what is going to happen, but in terminology that is readable, as oppose to actual coding.

Looks made up to me.
It sort of references things, but I can't find any scripting language that looks like that.
Shutdown.ISD for example.
ISD, from what I know is Overcurrent shutdown.
Source. [Page 5.]
Overcurrent shutdown (ISD)
Each phase has an overcurrent shutdown circuit, which turns off the corresponding outputs when the output current exceeds the shutdown trip threshold (above the maximum current rating: 2.0 A minimum). The TB62208FTG exits ISD mode and resumes normal operation when the STANDBY pin is changed from High to Low and then to High. This circuit provides protection against short-circuit by temporarily disabling the device. Important notes on this feature will be provided later.
Le EDIT: Took too long... stupid work distracting me.

Well the easiest bit "imo" is this "0x983le" if it's hex, then L can't exist in it....

lol, comical low of the low, a wannabe script kiddy.
How did you find it out of curiosity?

- Rep Power
The student was caught typing and saving it whilst being secretly monitored using Impero.
As for its content, I was hoping someone would recogize the general syntax - especially the parentesis around every command. The details are system specific - ISD is a local user name (it is the initials of our support department).
Thanks for the replies so far.
Thanks to pshall from:

Looks like the sort of thing someone could use as a trick - ie. stick some echos in there and @echo off and confuse someone.

Agreed, if I was to look into their intent, casuse an 'error' reboot, reflash the hd firmware with a new mbr (fail, they are two completely different things), fail with an error each time someone tries to boot.

Is it possible the student is just showing this to her/his mates to show off rather than it doing anything.

it is not a language I recognize, in addition to the "l" in the hex he has a few mis-matched quotes and parentheses.
I agree it looks like it is a joke / showing off.
What was the file name and extension, the extension will give you a clue to what language he thought it was.
