Tracking Stolen Computers

Have you ever had a computer stolen?  Wouldn’t you like to find out who the rat bastard was that took it?  Well then you’d be interested in Adeona. imageAdeona installs on Linux, Mac OSX or Windows. It creates a daemon/service that “phones home” and stores the public IP address of the machine on a secure webserver.  From any other machine, you can run the recovery tool, give it a date range and have it spit the ip addresses back to you so you know where and when the PC hit the Internet.  The MAC version can even use the built in webcam to take snapshots of the rat bastard. Very interesting and very cool software…and of course…completely open source.  Enjoy the techno-narking goodness!!!!
