Description neil 2006-03-01 19:20:02 UTC
jabber-pyicq-transport.sh doesn't set jabber_pyicq_user="jabber" so the transport executes as root.
This is a potential security hazard and I suggest that the aforementioned script should provide a default setting of
"jabber" to execute the transport under.


Add ': ${jabber_pyicq_user="jabber"}' into the startup script
How-To-Repeat: Start jabber-pyicq-transport.sh as root
