It's an old version of Ubuntu, so you could have a lot of fun poking at
vulnerabilities, especially if you don't do an apt-get update.

Coincidentally, this VM is vulnerable to my personal favorite
exploit--Shellshock.  That's something fun you can cover in your class.

kyle at hacking:~ $ env 'x=() { :;}; echo Vulnerable' bash -c 'echo Test'         
kyle at hacking:~ $                                                               

And if you set up a web server on the VM, you can demonstrate how to use
Shellshock to dump /etc/passwd by setting a malicious User-Agent. [0]
