AIM security bot

Abe User (Sharp Ideas) has
glued together an AIM-based NMap

This sort of thing is the reason why you need to keep an eye
on the traffic that you allow in and out of your network. AIM
complicates the situation because it's one of those "tools" that can
initiate connections via multiple protocols, HTTP being one of them. If
you allow your users to surf, then AIM can probably "get out".

tool if it's yours, nasty if it "belongs" to someone else.
