The oath that prevented that spilling was sworn on the standard White Tower Oath Rod. But it wasn't the WT Oaths which did this, it was the BA Oaths which she'd sworn to replace the WT ones. So if she had been able to remove those BA Oaths, then she would have been able to blab.

On the other hand, a DF who has actually dedicated him or her self to the Shadow, has a connection to the DO whether or not that person can channel. The clearest evidence for this comes from Padan Fain, who can actually see the marks of this. That connection doesn't prevent the DF from spilling the beans on Shadow plots, but it does provide the Shadow a way of finding the bean spiller and dispensing chastisement.
