DVL Strychnine is finally final. The last pre-compilation is running at the moment, then the final compilation of the remaster will follow. Some nasty bugs fixed such as permissions problems of the pre-installed MySQL database containing first vulnerabe web examples. Click on the link below to see the current changelog. This shows you which additions have been added to the “classic” BT 2.0 release to build the base of the new era of Damn Vulnerable Linux. Some more minor unimportant features are left to install, however I believe it is time to go with the release to concentrate finally on the production of the most important: training lessons!

DVL Strychnine will be available via BitTorrent this weekend (never published before using BitTorrent! let's see if I run into problems!) - Later I place it on the mirrors. File size at the moment 822 MB, sorry for that but let the community decide what to kill!

A short intro video will follow soon, maybe I can make it this weekend.
