die perfekte Halloweendistribution: Damn Vulnerable Linux
Quote
Damn Vulnerable Linux (DVL) is everything a good Linux distribution isn't. Its developers have spent hours stuffing it with broken, ill-configured, outdated, and exploitable software that makes it vulnerable to attacks. DVL isn't built to run on your desktop - it's a learning tool for security students.
The main idea behind DVL was to build up a training system that I could use for my university lectures. My goal was to design a Linux system that was as vulnerable as possible, to teach topics such as reverse code engineering, buffer overflows, shellcode development, Web exploitation, and SQL injection.

Oder beim Linux Magazin:
Quote
DVL ist alles, was eine gute Linux-Distribution nicht ist, erläutert der Macher der Trainingsdistribution Dr. Thorsten Schneider von der Universität Bielefeld: Die Entwickler haben Stunden damit verbracht, DLV mit kaputter, fehlkonfigurierter und Angriffsmöglichkeiten offen lassender Software vollzustopfen. Herausgekommen sei ein Lernwerkzeug für Studenten, heißt es auf der zugehörigen Website.


viel "Spaß",
