Welcome to the Wraith IRC Bot official project site.


Wraith is an open source IRC bot written in C++. It has been in development since late 2003. It is based on Eggdrop 1.6.12 but has since evolved into something much different at its core.


Wraith aims to be a secure and easy to setup and manage botnet, compared to eggdrop. A botnet can be setup in a matter of minutes and updated later with 1 command. Leaf bots save no files locally, but rather store configuration in their own binary. Hubs do not connect to IRC, and keep a local encrypted copy of the userfile. It is meant for use on IRC servers without services as a means of protecting an IRC channel from takeover, and easily controlling channels. Please see the features page for a full list as well as the FAQ.

Wraith can be setup on FreeBSD, Linux, OpenBSD and OpenSolaris shells. It does not support modules or TCL currently.
