Is UDB utilities(http://bre.klaki.net/programs/udb/
) safe for install in a shared envoirment?
This is from their site:
"UDB consists of a library and some simple utilities for creating and maintaining a shared-memory database associating users with IP addresses, or users with established TCP connections.
It was written primarily to allow an IRC proxy (tircproxy) to communicate with a modified identd on the system, with as little overhead and latency as possible. It could be useful for any other proxy system which could benefit from knowing what users to associate with dynamic IP addresses.
Although written with IP addresses and TCP/IP connections in mind, the library is easily extendable to handle other user-related data, which is why this is UDB - a User Database, not just an IP-User Database. Future releases may include API-level support for such extensions."
I do NOT want to open server up to be used as a proxy for IRC or anything else, hence why I am asking if it is safe
