This is OT, but perhaps someone knows an answer.
Is there a way a script can determine which computer it is running on and

How paranoid do you want to be? If the question is how to avoid
accidentally running something on the wrong machine, then the answer is
easy (check hostname, ip address, ...). If you want to avoid a malicious
computer running it, I doubt it can be done reliably.
So it's either easy or impossible.
