Log Analysis: Leaping

Try your hand at analyzing these VSFTPD logs.

  1. What is the username of the person who uploaded documents to the server?
  2. How many bytes were downloaded off the server?
  3. How many unique IP addresses tried to connect to the server?
  4. What is the name of the user who failed connect to the server the 3rd most times?

Check your answers here.
