Also captures for failed remote logins
Authored by: chenga on Dec 15, '06 08:50:52PM

An interesting side effect is that authsight took my picture when I was logging into my MBP via FTP from my Windows box (MBP sits right next to the desktop). I was wondering why all the photos popped onto my desktop (where I have them routed) and asl.log confirmed "failed FTP login" from my Windows machine. The failure came from forgetting to put my login name before the IP address xxxx@ and then authenticating. Apparently trying to log-in anonymously will trigger the asl.log and thus authsight.

Not sure if there's any good reason to change the program to prevent this from happening, but obviously taking a photo of what's in front of the Mac on a failed remote login doesn't do you much good.
