Servers for penetration testing

I'm in a process of learning security of networks and websites. I already practised code reviewing but I want to perform exercise.

Is there any online resources to get our hands dirty instead of just looking at code and word for learning web security or network security?

I would recommend that you have a look at some of the wargames out there. For example one of my personal favourites is Over the Wire where they provide several games of varying difficulty. Certainly makes for a much more entertaining and thrilling learning experience.

Another one more specifically targeting web-hacking is Hack This Site split into varying levels of difficulty.
