Damn Vulnerable Linux
|Kernel type||Monolithic kernel (Linux)|
Damn Vulnerable Linux (DVL) was a distribution of GNU/Linux geared toward computer security students. It functioned as a tool for observing and studying vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel and popular user space software. It was available as a live DVD, and could be run through a virtual machine within the host operating system. It has been discontinued.
DVL is a SLAX-based distribution, and uses the Slackware .tgz package management system. It uses outdated versions of various software, to deliberately make it the most vulnerable operating system ever.
