Welcome to 1989!
And welcome to Germany!
This VM is inspired by a book! There should be plenty of hints which one it is, if you havent read it.
This is a simple VM, so dont fear any advanced exploitation, reverse engineering or other advanced techniques!
Just a solid and simple advanced persistent threat (admins) ;)
So the level is clearly: beginner (as intended).
For some it may teach a solid (old) new Privesc technique that together with the above mentioned book inspired me to this VM.
I made the effort to throw some very basic story/polish into it.
Also if everythin runs smoothly the VM should show its IP adress in the Login screen on the console!
-No, I dont consider finding the VM in your own network a real challenge ;)-
If you should encounter any problems or want to drop me a line use #milet and @teh_warriar on twitter or chat me up in #vulnhub!
Hope you enjoy this VM!
Gonna enjoy reading some writeups and hope you might find other ways then the intended ones!
