psyBNC is an IRC-Bouncer with many features. It compiles on Linux, FreeBSD, SunOs and Solaris. The configuration file for psyBNC is called psybnc.conf (duh).An attacker can use the password, host and portinformation in this file to bounce his IRC connection through these bouncers, providing some privacy or just to show off some fancy irc hostname that are usually linked to those IP addresses.

2005-04-20 18:08:29 (synthax): wtf? there is no encryption? I got in just like that.. no problem
2006-07-27 18:04:52 (mavromatis): (8) Well, as long you dont use too dumb passwords *g*
Passwords get encrypted using a hash created on compiling time.
The source makesalt.c creates a file called salt.h, which keeps
the needed encryption salts. Be sure to move the salt.h File to
a safe place after you compiled psyBNC. Authentification passwords
which dont need to be enciphered, are stored as blowfish crypt-by-key
