Hacking the Fender - passwords.csv is empty

I’m working on the Hacking the Fender problem and after getting an empty list no matter what I do I discovered I can open the ‘password.csv’ file that I’m supposed to be reading usernames from. When I open the file it’s completely blank.

Can someone provide that file for me?

Here’s my code and a link to the project so far for reference:


import csv

compromised_users = []

with open('passwords.csv') as password_file:

  password_csv = password_file.read()

  for row in password_csv:



What about simply resetting the project (should be near the RUN/SAVE button) though I’d suggest reading the prompt to make sure it’s only resetting that project.

Could you please provide a link to the project to accompany your query.

Resetting the project worked. Didn’t realize that was an option until you suggested it.

Thank you
