Quickie #1: Virtualbox vs VmWare Network Drivers

When importing a vulnerable VM a colleague has made and exported using OVF format into virtualbox… even though you have the XP safe “PCNET-FAST III” selected that should work without any need for additional drivers (here’s looking at you intel)…

Make sure you “update” the driver to the non VMWare Accelerated version, otherwise your network interface will not start.

That’s 30 to 60 minutes of “WTF!?!?” that I’ll never get back.
