This machine hopes to inspire BRAVERY in you; this machine may surprise you from the outside. This is designed for OSCP practice, and the original version of the machine was used for a CTF. It is now revived, and made more nefarious than the original.
If you MUST have hints for this machine (even though they will probably not help you very much until you root the box!): Bravery is (#1): a positive trait in people, (#2): another way of saying "try harder", (#3): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2QPJ2xGMiY
Note: There may be more than one method to obtain root privileges on this machine. Look around you!
