A friend of mine was telling me about an application that takes a picture with the built in camera when a incorrect password is entered. I downloaded iAlertU but the application he was talking about took pictures when unlocking screen saver, waking the computer up, ect and as far as I can tell.... iAlertU has to be activated in order to work and it seems to be bery glitchy... does anyone know what I talk about.

it stores the pictures in you /var/log/Authsight folder. Just go to Go>>Go To Folder... and type that and you should see the pictures it took.

I'm having another odd problem though. It seems to only take a picture the first time the wrong password is entered. Then after that nothing. I try to lock my screen using the screen saver to test it after it has already taken on picture but when I type the wrong password in it refuses to take a second picture. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?
