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?
I have come across many bots being run as root. So people should look out. And in earlier versions of Eggdrop there is
one serious bug to become OWNER when someone has master access. I will demonstrate on eggdrop 0.9p, this bug still
works in lotsa newer versions aswell:
.set owner Chotaire
.chattr Chotaire +n
When another owner tries to remove your owner and master access, you will still be able to re-"own" yourself unless
they have detected you in the .set owner variable.
Now for FIXING YOUR TCL problem, take a look at this one...
recompile your bot, and that's it... no more problems.
