As a new wizard, commissioned to set up and run a new MOO for CAL, 
I'm discussing security issues with personnel who are in a position 
to kell the project if the security is not to their satisfaction.

Their particular concern is to avoid players gaining access to the 
MOO server root and thence to other machines on the network.

Does anyone have personal experience of this happening?
Does anyone have knowledge of this happening elsewhere?
What was done to counterract it?
Are there any references to theoretical discussions of the subject?
