Important: Your team should use your IRC-Chat server, which is hosted on your DNS, to communicate during the lab. This will give your team members a convenient way to communicate and, in particular, to share information as you attack your opponent's network. Once you've logged in to your host on the virtual network and pulled up a shell, start up the IRC client and connect to your team's IRC server as follows:
  1. Go to the the Applications Menu --> Internet-->XChat IRC
  2. When the client comes up, choose your team's IRC network from the list of Networks, and click connect.
  3. In the resulting window: a) Enter your nickname (change the generic studentXX), b) choose to join the channel #team. Note that 'nickname' is the only field you need to change.
Important: In xchat use ctrl-c to copy and ctrl-v to paste!

[+] Team Leader Note

Part 1 - DDoS attack from the outside

In this part of the lab, your team will try performing a Denial of Service Attack on your opponent's web server from outside their network. This portion of the lab comes first and is really independent of the rest. We will move from Part 1 to Part 2 as a class.
DDOS Attack on the Opponents' Web Server

Stop and wait until your instructor directs you to continue.


Part 2 - Infiltrate and attack from the inside

In this part of the lab, your team will try to gain access to various parts of your opponent's network. Team Leaders should assign their team members to target a particular host. When you have finished with that host, you should try to infiltrate and attack other hosts. It is important to always communicate with your team members about what you discover: passwords, sensitive information, useful information, etc. Note: The "sensitive data" you're looking for are tokens — just silly pieces of ASCII art that symbolize important, secret information.
