antibear module (All InspIRCd versions)

Description
The anti-bear filters out many versions of the Turkish trojan bot known in security circles as 'bear' or 'bear.txt'.
Configuration Tags
This module does not require any extra configuration, beyond the <module> tag to load it.
Additional Modes
This module does not implement any extra user or channel modes.
Additional Commands
This module adds no extra commands.
Special Notes
This module worked at the time of writing. As all malicious programs are dynamic in nature there is no guarantee that the heuristic used will always be effective against these type of bots.

It is important to note that as of this edit, m_antibear prevents the WebIRC client QWebIRC from working. If you want to use QWebIRC on your InspIRCd server/network, you must unload this module first or it will not work. I'll remove this message as soon as the QWebIRC developer adds CTCP TIME "support" to QWebIRC.
