    you could run "netstat -np" and check if some process does connect to some irc port like 6667, 7000 etc. If so, grab the pid and "ls -l /proc/pid/", check executable name and path, location

    what do you mean with "irc scripts" ?
    scripts for eggdrops? tcl?

    A good start would be to block all the common irc ports at your firewall.

    Edit /etc/apf/conf.apf

    Enable Egress filtering, and add the ports you need to Egress ports. I would assume ingress to be blocked already.
