Damn Vulnerable Linux distro

A veces pongo creaciones de gente con bastante tiempo libre y hoy lo voy a volver a hacer.

Resulta que alguien ha pensado que es más fácil hacer un sistema inseguro que uno seguro, así que se ha puesto manos a la obra y ha creado Damn Vulnerable Linux. Incluye versiones viejas de aplicaciones con agujeros de seguridad, configuraciones horrorosas para permitir juanqueas y todo ese tipo de cosas que nos hacen más alegre el día a día.

Además tiene una función didáctica para enseñar a los futuros a hackers...

Texto extraído de su web:
Actually, it is a perverted Linux distribution made to be as insecure as possible. It is collection of IT-Security and IT-Anti-Security tools. Additional it includes a fullscaled lesson based environment for Attack & Defense on/for IT systems for self-study or teaching activities during university lectures. It's a Live Linux Distro, which means it runs from a bootable CD in memory without changing the native operating system of the host computer. As well it can be run within virtual machine environments, such as qemu or vmware. There is no need to install a virtual machine if you use the embedded option. Its sole purpose in life is to put as many security tools at your disposal with as much training options as it can. It contains a huge ammount of lessons including lesson description - and solutions if the level has been solved by a community member at crackmes.de.
