But we could not distinguish stuck (very slow) attack and
crashed/disconnected/blacked-out client using files from john.
Hopefully daemon calls john --status. Its output contains time. I.e.
this file is updated always if client is online. So server daemon
should mark attacks without such updates as aborted.
