Lab: Broken brute-force protection, IP block


This lab is vulnerable due to a logic flaw in its password brute-force protection. To solve the lab, brute-force the victim's password, then log in and access their "My account" page.

Tip: Advanced users may want to solve this lab by using a macro or the Turbo Intruder extension. However, it is possible to solve the lab without using these advanced features.
