Kioptrix - What is that?

I just started the Kioptrix walkthroughs, however I just realized, that I didn't mention what they are. So if someone doesn't know, Kioptrix has 4 challenges released through 4 different virtual machines, and the goal is to gain root on each VM. The difficulty of each level should be harder and harder.

The website:

I didn't have a chance to practice or do such things since I finished PWB / OSCP in May, so I thought it would be good to do these sort of ethical hacking challenges again, and my plan for now is to go through the Kioptrix ones, and Metasploitable. I won't have time for others now, but I hope to do them later.

g0tm1lk has a very good collection of all kind of challenges, which can be found here:
