AIM Sniff is a utility for monitoring and archiving AIM and MSN messages across a network. It can be used to monitor for cases of harassment or warez trading. It has the ability to do a live dump (actively sniff the network) or read a PCAP file and parse the file for IM messages. You also have the option of dumping the information to a MySQL database or STDOUT. AIM Sniff will also monitor for an IM login and then perform an SMB lookup on the originating computer in order to match NT Domain names with IM login names (handles).
IM-Filter is a daemon that runs on a firewall and filters ICQ traffic. The daemon can identify file transfers, handle UIN and word blacklists, manage a list with currently logged in users, and log messages sent via the ICQ protocol. The modular design allows implementation of other protocols like MSN or IRC.
IRC Defender is a Perl program for protecting your IRC network against virus drones, general troublemakers, ban evasion, and attacks. It is fully modular, able to unload and load modules on the fly, and comes with several modules to ban anatoly/fyle virus drones, block unauthorised cgi:irc sites, conduct ctcp version surveys, maintain ctcp version blacklists, and (most importantly) set regexp-based akills.
MSNgrep is a script to capture MSN Messenger conversations. It uses pylibpcap to sort through MSN's jumble of packets for instant messages, a few status messages, and TypingUser notifications. Using these, it builds up a database of email addresses to MSN server addresses, and local IP addresses. This lets it match up an instant message to the sender's email address, and the receiver's email address.
SMSTerm is an application that uses the ICQ2000 protocol to present you a shell on your mobile phone which allows you to interact with your computer from any mobile on a GSM network. It runs a shell on a pty, and allows you to directly send commands to the shell through SMS. Minimal authentication is done over SMS before spawning a shell and offering it to the user on the mobile phone. It is very useful for remote administration tasks, or checking out the status of the network, or just to run some small chores on your system while you are away. It uses Expect.pm in the background. SMSTerm also includes a script to send SMS through the ICQ network from the command line to any GSM mobile, and also includes a PHP script to set up a Web->SMS gateway.
StatsServ is a little program which emulates an ever smaller IRC server (in regard to the commands it handles) and transfers statistics from IRC into a database. You can then use the data, for example, on a Web site where you want to display the latest statistics. Statistics consist of the uptime of each server in the network, a list of channels, including their topic (except for secret (+s) and private (+p) channels), and the number of users in the network. You can normally get these statistics via /stats u, /list, and /lusers (if /stats u is supported on the network and enabled for normal users).
