Install OWASP Juice Shop on HyperV

The OWASP juice shop is a very vulnerable website with challenges. Juice Shop encompasses vulnerabilities from the entire OWASP Top Ten along with many other security flaws found in real-world applications! In this guide we will Install OWASP Juice Shop on HyperV. We will first install a Ubuntu Linux system on a VM and then Install the juice shop on top of that

Download Ubuntu here Download Ubuntu Desktop | Download | Ubuntu

Now lets get started to Install OWASP Juice Shop

HyperV Installation

I presume you know how to install HyperV on your machine. If not then follow the guide written by Microsoft to activate HyperV on your machine Enable Hyper-V on Windows 10 | Microsoft Docs

Once done start the HyperV console

Create a virtual switch

Inside the console on the right side click on Virtual Switch Manager and create a new External Switch. Just call it external

Connect it to the right NIC and press Ok

I’m choosing for an external switch because My kali machine is on an other laptop. This way it is available for the entire network

Creating an VM

Once done create a new VM. We will go for a generation 1 VM

Installing OWASP Juice Shop

We are not going to install it in a docker as I want full potential of all challenges

The installation steps are also found here GitHub – bkimminich/juice-shop: OWASP Juice Shop

Install node.js by typing in terminal  sudo apt install nodejs
Run git clone 
Go into the cloned folder with cd juice-shop
Run npm install (only has to be done before first start or when you change the source code)
Run npm start
Browse to http://localhost:3000
OWASP juice shop installed

If you want to connect to it from an other machine on the network than change localhost with the IP of the VM running the juiceshop.

Now create a snapshot so you can always revert back to a clean juice shop

This conclude the installation of juice shop on ubuntu with HyperV. I’m sure we can run it in a smaller Linux distribution but for now this is working for me
