Default Ubuntu running server daemons as root

I installed a dedicated Gobby server called sobby. It's running as root. That's a very bad idea. Please, somebody sudo apt-get install sobby, and tell me if it runs as root.

chris@lucid:~$ ps -ef | grep sobby


root***** 1625**** 1* 0 Jun14 ?******* 00:00:00 /usr/bin/sobby
chris**** 5300* 8500* 0 11:45 pts/3*** 00:00:00 grep --color=auto sobby
chris@lucid:~$ sudo service sobby restart
[sudo] password for chris:
** Stopping sobby********************************************* ********** [ OK ]


** Starting sobby********************************************* ********** [ OK ]
chris@lucid:~$ ps -ef | grep sobby
root***** 5339**** 1* 7 11:45 ?******* 00:00:00 /usr/bin/sobby
chris@lucid:~$

New to group and linux in general. In perusing messages, was intrigued
by your subject. Never heard of gobby so started to google.

Don't if related at all but back in 2007, there was a gentoo bug
involving sobby running as root.
Don't know if/how it was resolved but maybe of interest...
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171089

Who knows...

Sure does...

Immediately after installation
bladernr@klaatu:~/.xchat2/xchatlogs$ ps aux |grep sobby
root 13000 0.0 0.0 62828 3588 ? S 17:52 0:00 /usr/bin/sobby

And a restart...
bladernr@klaatu:~/.xchat2/xchatlogs$ sudo service sobby restart
* Stopping sobby

[ OK ]
* Starting sobby

[ OK ]
bladernr@klaatu:~/.xchat2/xchatlogs$ ps aux |grep sobby
root 13555 3.0 0.0 62828 3580 ? S 18:02 0:00 /usr/bin/sobby

so I opened a security bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sobby/+bug/594857

Cheers,
Jeff

FWIW, that bug's been updated, and a fix committed upstream to
Debian... check the bug for info.

Let me know when anybody receives the update. I will also look at the channel log to be certain, and then I will be running a dedicated sobby session
