Take iSight snapshots during invalid login attempts
Authored by: mr007 on Dec 12, '06 03:43:15PM

What about a combination of show login window and failed to authenticate user? I dont wanna have pictures of me all over the place as soon as i wake my MBP up from screensave mode, I just want shots of those who wake it up and try to gain access through the login window that pops up. Something similar to what Deskshade does with its log after the screen has been locked, but with pics!

Any ideas?

I'm not sure. My screen saver hardly ever gets used.

You could simulate someone trying to break in, and then see what's in the log files. If you can find messages that occur then, and not when you're just normally using the machine, you can change the script to watch for them.

What you want is not actually a combination of failed login attempts and show login window - but instead the combination of show login window and LACK of successful login.

So take a picture whenever the show window occurs, but delete the picture if there is a successful login.
