I wanted to see how quickly I could knock out this “very easy” vulnhub VM. And maybe help out any beginners who stumble upon this blog post.
They do give some hints. Let’s fill in the blanks from the authors description.
DC:6 can serve as a light introduction to WordPress pen testing with WPScan.
This Vulnhub VM featured some decent, realistic web entry points that I enjoyed.
I passed the exam on December 8, 2018. And then, eventually, went on to root all of the regular lab machines (~55) in all of the subnets. It was a blast!
This review will focus on some topics where I may have disagreed with the majority.
This is a very easy web-focused VM, done in the style of some OSCP/PWK lab machines. You can download it here.
If you have experience with web pen testing and Linux this should be a quick pwn, and if you’re new, it’s a decent first box to try.

Here’s another easy VulnHub VM.
My goal this month is to increase the speed that I pop these boxes, in preparation for the OSCP.

Let’s dig in!
LazySysAdmin is another VulnHub CTF.
The description suggests you shouldn’t overthink this. The author states that it was built out of frustration from failing the OSCP exam and that you should be looking right “in front of you” for the answers.
The description intrigued me, as my main goal this month has been to increase the speed that I solve these VMs and reduce the time wasted in rabbit holes.
