You need to wait for 1.6.16 or use cvs version of a bot.
If you don't link directly bots with people who you don't trust, and
make sure, that all bots have password set, i.e. by loading following
script to each bot (script requires alltools.tcl):

--- cut here ---
bind time - "0 0 * * *" time_check_for_empty_pass
proc time_check_for_empty_pass {args} {
  foreach bot [userlist b] {
    if {[passwdok $bot ""]} {
      setuser $bot PASS [randstring 12]
--- cut here ---

Script will check everyday if there are bots on userlist that don't
have password set, and will set it, this should make you safe.
Don't link bots with people you don't trust, because that bug still
could be exploited that way.
