Notes to the Player


As part of the challenge, Kvasir utilises LXC to provide kernel isolation. When the host VM boots, it takes can take a little bit of time before the containers become available.

It is therefore advised to wait 30-60 seconds after the login prompt is presented, before attacking the VM.

A few other pointers:

  • Not every LXC is ‘rootable’
  • No SSH brute-forcing is required
