security and cracking systems


Found an excellent site called http://www.secure-software-engineering.com,
which has some very interesting articles introducing fuzzing
and threat modelling. Also of interest is their own little
linux operating system called Damn Vulnerable Linux (DVL),
which is an operating system specially designed to be full of
security holes. Looking at the screenshots it looks just like
another regular linux distro, but what really got me
interested is that there are lots of lessons in there for

The lessons are divided into three categories: BinExploitMe
Lessons, WebExploitMe Lessons, and CrackMe Lessons.

Sounds fun. Just the thing I need now when I have so much
time on my hands (not!).
