Take iSight Snapshots When Invalid Login is Detected
This is so cool. Posted verbatim from Mac OS X Hints:
“With the new MacBook Pro’s including built-in iSight cameras, I thought it would be useful to take an iSight snapshot of anyone trying to break into my laptop. This is done by tailing /var/log/asl.log for invalid login attempts (both at the login screen and screen saver). I have created an authsight program (1.5KB download) that provides a monitoring daemon which calls the camera after an invalid login attempt, and also includes a launchd manifest. An iSight command line tool named iSightCapture is also required.
It would not be too difficult to modify this tool to call home and even email photos should a laptop be stolen.”
Setting this up is pretty easy and requires a few downloads:
