The session recovery files are meant to be machine-readable, not
human-readable.  While you could make sense of their individual lines if
you really had to, there's a better option:

I suggest that instead you locate and view the corresponding .log file,
which should give you "an idea of where the attack is going."  This
should be a file in the same location and of the same name, except with
the .log suffix in place of .rec.

I hope this helps.
