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.

A walkthrough for this machine will be provided at a later date. If you have rooted the machine, and would like to do a walkthrough, please feel free to do so!

VM: Format: .vmdk (VMWare) Operating System: Linux

Networking: DHCP is enabled. IP is auto-assigned.

Mercy is: (#1): what you always plead for but cannot get. (#2): a dubious machine. (#3): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-5UnMdKg70

This machine reminds us of a DEVELOPMENT environment: misconfigurations rule the roost. This is designed for OSCP practice, and the original version of the machine was used for a CTF. It is now revived, and made slightly more nefarious than the original.

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.
