MERCY is a machine dedicated to Offensive Security for the PWK course, and to a great friend of mine who was there to share my sufferance with me. :-)

MERCY is a name-play on some aspects of the PWK course. It is NOT a hint for the box.

If you MUST have hints for this machine (even though they will probably not help you very much until you root the box!): Mercy is: (#1): what you always plead for but cannot get, (#2): a dubious machine, (#3):

Note: Some report a kernel privilege escalation works on this machine. If it does, try harder! There is another vector that you should try!

Feel free to contact the author at if you would like to drop a comment.
