[OWASP-Security101] Need help/advice running a demo

Hi all,

I'm working with my college's technology society to show off security and
web vulnerabilities.
The plan is to do a quick demo at the end of the presentation and "hack" a
VirtualBox running an insecure version of Wordpress and (hopefully) get
root access, so I've a few questions:
- Does anyone know a Wordpress version & extension combo that would have
that risk?
- I'm having trouble getting 2 VirtualBox Machines to talk (over port 80 or
22). I've followed demos, but it seems that it isn't acting like a normal
network. Does anyone have a good tutorial on how to get them talking to
each other?

Thanks in advance,
