This webpage http://www.russonline.net/tonikgin/EduHacking.html
called "XDCC - An .EDU Admin's Nightmare" has a lot of good information
also.  It details how a lot of the attacks that hit the .edu's
occurred, gives info about the bots on the channels, etc..
Definitely worth a read.

Also firedaemon can be found at its website for comparison
at http://www.firedaemon.com.

That page also details iroffer which is a DCC bot used
to offer files on IRC.  It is pretty common.  It is found
at http://www.iroffer.org.

Hope this is useful.  Just part of the fun of being
in the biz!

Our campus gets IRC 'bots in waves.  Are you interested in the firedaemon
set?  I may have some archived, and I can certainly collect some for you on
the next few calls.
