Email me when discounted: 
Check Failed Password Attempts 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).

This application is based on tips submitted to www.macintouch.com. See the MacInTouch report on more...
