Joe McCray has also developed a ‘Pentester Lab Network’ offering that takes building a hacklab to the next level. You can read more about it here:
It’s a target network that emulates a medium sized enterprise company. There are hundreds of hosts in the network with different targets ranging from XP to Windows 8, Server 2003 to Server 2012, lots of Linux/Unix flavors and tons of popular IT products/technologies (Sharepoint, Exchange, Lync, Oracle, PeopleSoft, and so much more).
Each month Joe will be giving away what he calls “Pathways” which are attack scenario walkthroughs that will take you through attacking several hosts in a unique combination. The regular cost of this lab access ranges from $100 to $300 per month depending on the package you purchase. For this week only Joe is willing to give you 3 months of the gold package (a regular $900 deal) for $300.
