I remember people excitedly saying that they set up their MBP's to take a picture out of it's built in isight cameras. Supposedly it snaps a pic of the user who logs in with the wrong password. This lets you know if someone is actively trying to guess your password on the laptop. I was wondering if anyone remembers this program, and knows the name/where i can find it. Thanks!

I did a search but didn't get it listed as a result. Sorry!

Iris 1.0.4 - MacUpdate

Iris has a motion-detection mode. It'd start taking snapshots when it detected motion (e.g., someone sitting down at your computer).

Not free, but the demo may last long enough for your needs.
