Warning: This post contains a solution!

1.) you want to see a possible alternative solution or
2.) you are stuck and need a hint!

Connect to the server using the following credentials:

Server: bandit.labs.overthewire.org
Port: 2220
Username: bandit6
Password: DXjZxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The properties we know from the level goal are:

- owned by user bandit7
- owned by group bandit6
- 33 bytes in size

This can be used to parametrize the "find" command:

bandit6@bandit:~$ find / -user bandit7 -group bandit6 -size 33c

Append '2>/dev/null' to the command to get rid of the 'Permission denied' messages.
The result of this is:

bandit6@bandit:~$ find / -user bandit7 -group bandit6 -size 33c 2>/dev/null
