Password Attacks Lab - Medium


I fell into a stupor when solving the cube, found the user “a…”, got the user “j…” and set the session, dug up all the files on the server, logs, history files and I can not find a thread in this tangle for 5 days already. Please tell me how to return your thread or share a link what knowledge you need to tighten up =( Thank you friends in advance.
