Machine Details: DC-6 is another purposely built vulnerable lab with the intent of gaining experience in the world of penetration testing.
This isn't an overly difficult challenge so should be great for beginners.
The ultimate goal of this challenge is to get root and to read the one and only flag.
Linux skills and familiarity with the Linux command line are a must, as is some experience with basic penetration testing tools.
For beginners, Google can be of great assistance, but you can always tweet me at @DCAU7 for assistance to get you going again. But take note: I won't give you the answer, instead, I'll give you an idea about how to move forward.
DC-6 is a VirtualBox VM built on Debian 64 bit, but there shouldn't be any issues running it on most PCs.
I have tested this on VMWare Player, but if there are any issues running this VM in VMware, have a read through of this.
It is currently configured for Bridged
Machine Size (in MB): 618 MB
