XF 1.4 read .bin files from database?

#1
Hi

Someone's been trying to login to my admin account. Going into the database reveals a table called xf_login_attempt. Under ip-address is some random string and clicking it on it give me a .bin file.

How would I go to read this file?

Open it in Notepad or some other text editor.

There's an option in PHP My Admin to display the contents of those fields, but if it's lots of data it's probably worth viewing it in a proper editor.
