While reviewing sites that offer Linux shell accounts / web-hosting, I came
across the site www.shellreviews.com. They talk alot about eggdrop bots.
Anyone know anything about these? From reading the reviews, it seems that
eggdrops are used solely for the purposes of IRC, but what I was wondering
was: could an eggdrop bot be compiled and used to connect by telnet / ssh to
other systems and respond to the environment there.. eg, check to see what
users are logged on, send a message to them when they login, examine the log
files from time to time, and email an admin if they spot something suspect
on the system.. that sort of thing. I couldn't find anything on the websites
about using eggdrop for this sort of purpose, so I though I'd ask here. If
any one can help, it would be much appreciated.
