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

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