I've been thinking about setting up a server to allow shell access to
users that wouldn't normally have it. A shell server like this could
be used for IRC (read: screen+irssi), ssh tunneling, etc, etc. Before
I actually implement something I'd like to test and prepare for common
multi-user privacy and security issues. To that end I'd like to invite
anyone interested to come break my system.

I wont tell you too much about the system but I'd like you to login
and start screwing around. Try to view things you shouldn't. Try to
edit files you shouldn't. Try to gain access you shouldn't, etc.

I'd be interested in hearing what you're able to find out about the
machine, the network, the users, etc.

If you're interested, let me know and I'll give you the address and
login credentials.
