lsof will give you a list of all files being accessed at the moment and the users that are accessing them, among other things.

there is apparently another file which not many know of is /var/log/btmp and the related command to read it is lastb.
lastb is same as that of last except that it shows all the bad login attempts which are recorded into /var/log/btmp, if the file is not present you would have to touch it to get started.
