Damn Vulnerable Linux

I have been using this for quite a while now, it's a great way to understand how Linux should NOT be setup. You can load it inside of a virtual machine.

DVL is a live CD available as a 150MB ISO. It's based on the popular mini-Linux distribution Damn Small Linux (DSL), not only for its minimal size, but also for the fact that DSL uses a 2.4 kernel, which makes it easier to offer vulnerable elements that might not work under the 2.6 kernel. It contains older, easily breakable versions of Apache, MySQL, PHP, and FTP and SSH daemons, as well as several tools available to help you compile, debug, and break applications running on these services, including GCC, GDB, NASM, strace, ELF Shell, DDD, LDasm, LIDa, and more.
