Leave a comment


Here is a shell command that can be put into your .bashrc file so that whenever a user login to your shell console, you will be alerted via email.

echo “Alert! `whoami` logged into `hostname` on `date` |mail -s”Alert! `whoami` logged into `hostname` on `date`” email@domain.com

That’s it.
