Hi, I am stuck in here for hours, can anybody enlight me , with some directions ?
the challenge is:
You know that your target’s password is 4 characters long, so you’ll just have to brute force 1 character at a time. We already declared the variable correctGuesses which you should use to keep track of how many characters you have guessed so far.
Bear in mind that your program does not need to guess the password, that is not your goal!
You need to create a loop that only stops when all 4 characters have been guessed. On each loop iteration you need to calculate a random number between 1 and 3, which will correspond to each of the bellow scenarios:
- You guessed one character correctly, which increases correctGuesses by 1 and prints the message ‘Found X characters’ (where X is replaced with the current number of correct guesses).
- You guessed incorrectly and your target’s terminal has detected too many attempts, which resets correctGuesses to 0 and prints the message ‘Starting over’ to the console.
- You guessed incorrectly, but have not been detected yet, correctGuesses is kept with the same value.
Once the password is cracked (that is, correctGuesses has a value of 4) you should print the message ‘Terminal hacked!’.
Make sure all the messages in your code are in the correct format in order to advance!

I have this msg error:
Code is incorrect
You guessed some characters correctly, but failed to do the right thing!
