mac default iconCheck Failed Password Attempts for Mac Publisher's description

This is a small application that parses the /var/log/secure.log file looking for failed authorization attempts.

This is a small application that parses the /var/log/secure.log file looking for failed authorization attempts. It presents a summary of the total number of failed attempts (and successes) per user. It will also optionally display the full log listing of each failed attempt, each successful attempt, and SSH information from the /var/log/system.log (see the preferences to enable/disable these options).
When you run this application, if your secure.log file is not empty, the application will ask for your administrative password. This authentication is just used so the application can read the secure.log file which is owned by the system and generally does not allow regular users access to its contents. The password is not stored anywhere and this application does not modify any files or settings on your system. The password is just used so it can read the protected log.
This application is based on tips submitted to www.macintouch.com. See the MacInTouch report on Security: Access Monitoring and SSH (http://www.macintouch.com/security-mon.html) for a discussion of what these results mean and how to better protect your system.
If you are a native speaker of a non-English language and are interested in helping to localize this application, please let us know.
This application is unsupported freeware. It is provided “AS-IS”, with all faults and with no warranty of any kind.

No special requirements.
