An advanced script/web solution to track stolen Macs
Authored by: drudus on Sep 26, '09 12:17:41PM

This is a neat solution but I have concerns about the use of the ftp user & password in the script. It's possible that the thief could use these to remove uploaded files & data. Depending on your hosting setup they could potentially meddle with your website, or use the access to try other attacks.

I think a simple php script on the server that accepts post data could reduce the risk a little, by at least removing the ability for the thief to gain access to the server if they are smart enough.
