HGBot: IRC SQL Injection FilterCopyleft Games Group

HGBot is a Python program that automates our Mercurial repository management, handles Mercurial authentication, and provides user interfaces such as IRC.

Currently, there are several checks to ensure strings sent to HGBot may not include SQL injections, such as end quotes or semicolons, but this may not be enough. Add a tighter filter on any string originating from IRC which gets passed into an SQL command.
