mIRC exploit released

Posted by Ferg on Monday 13 October 2003

There is currently an exploit circulating for mIRC. This exploit can cause your mIRC to crash, and may also be more serious. Information regarding the exploit can be found here.

There are currently no fixes for this exploit on mirc.com, however, you can stop the exploit by adding "/ignore -wd *" to your perform list, without the "s.

UPDATE:
There has been a new version of mIRC released, over night, to fix the issue. You can download it from www.mirc.com

Please log in to post comments.

What does that line do: /ignore -wd * What is it I will be ignoring?

HolgerK said on Monday 13 October 2003

How comes it turns 1/2 the people in my room user lists blue and some rooms non are now blue :/

MZhukov said on Monday 13 October 2003

#7: It ignores all DCCs from all users on all networks (d = DCC, w = all networks).

magpie said on Monday 13 October 2003

If you are using newer mirc version with nn script and everybody in channellist has a red nick ( means ignore DCC and Chat) after typing /ignore wd* type /ignore off to solve this problem. Of course once you do that, everyone can hit you again with that attack so don\'t come crying if you fall for that trick

snoop said on Monday 13 October 2003

For NNscript users: Go to adressbook and delete the ignore nick. If you have done that, all colours will be normal!

sLychen said on Monday 13 October 2003

isnt it possible to block the exploid from server side ?

A-n-A said on Monday 13 October 2003

if it was then they wouldnt be asking us to add that perform list :)

brsxlordy said on Monday 13 October 2003

no I mean anything like this: //mode $me +r

A-n-A said on Monday 13 October 2003

#14 - usermode +R will limit the number of users able to exploit you, but authed users still could, it is not a decent solution. The only way to be 100% secure is to ignore all DCCs.

Bugfix: http://www.cyberscripters.net/mirc6.1+%20bugfix.txt This Bugfix only works with mIRC 6.1 and 6.11 NOT with mIRC 6.0, 6.01, 6.02 or 6.03 because of a new /debug feature in 6.1

New mIRC version out (v6.12), fixing the problem - http://www.mirc.co.uk

I have added the ignore line into the perform now I dont want to download the new mIRC version becuse NNScript doesent work then ;)

Senitel said on Tuesday 14 October 2003

6.12 seems to be OK. I haven\'t found out how to exploit, though, I tried to do something like overflow with a mIRC 1.9(!) against 6.12, but in fact the 0ld mIRC crashed :D The good side of the exploit is that random \"hi asl\" fellows that hardly know anything about computers are cast out, otherwise the exploit is very annoying one.

ultrix said on Wednesday 15 October 2003

that is some fuckep up spam you got there!

NacTa said on Friday 17 October 2003

I think perhaps they need a \"You may not post more than one comment every 10 minutes\" rule.

\"-O- (Broadcast) this news goes to all of you dumbasses using Internet Explorer: If you see someone pasting a URL containing \'billiard-cafe-friedberg\' - try not clicking it. It\'s a virus that exploits one of the about 4394729354723437439 bugs in Internet Explorer to spread itself. And as a general advice: DO NOT USE IE. AT ALL.\" 1. thx for \"dumbasses\"... very nice 2.

[MonSieuR]Kapi said on Saturday 18 October 2003

developper, and after having tested a large number of browsers, there is actually *no decent aternative* to IE to access and have a correct display on every site of the web. That\'s too bad but this is a fact.

[MonSieuR]Kapi said on Saturday 18 October 2003

a) Post in the right place. This is for comments on the mirc exploit. b) If you were anywhere near the \"professional\" website developer you claim to be, your code would work in any browser. There are several viable alternatives. I myself use Opera and Safari, depending on what platform I\'m working on.

Cheez said on Saturday 18 October 2003

unfortunately opers are human and occasionally have stupid moments as well. The O Broadcast was not agreed and is not the view of QNet as a whole, especially the completely inappropriate \'dumbass\' comment.

specceh said on Saturday 18 October 2003

I agree with #1112. That broadcast was more than poor. @speecceh: kick that dumbass!

Lufi said on Saturday 18 October 2003

#1112/1113: Well, I daresay that \"your\" problem is that you take the IE-display as \'correct\' and everything else as \"false\". But the thing is, that browsers just differ from each other and you can´t demand that every browser handles html like the IE does (the IE doesnt even stick to WC3!). A professional site-developer always tries to make his site look correkt on almost ALL commonly-used browsers of our time, like #1114 already said. I use IE, Mozilla, Opera and... lynx :> (but thats a s

Moloch said on Saturday 18 October 2003

\"This exploit can cause your mIRC to crash, and may also be more serious.\" what do you mean with that sentence? Can it cause other programs/games to crash?

|RE|-LuNaPoNy^ said on Saturday 18 October 2003

#27 The correct display you talk about is the \"home-made\" standard IE runs with .. not the w3c standard ... So if it wont show correctly in an alternate browser its prolly becouse the site dont run with the standards. Btw, try out Mozilla Firebird. The best alternate browser ive tested this far

drago said on Sunday 19 October 2003

Its a crash bug in 6.12 too ...

drago said on Sunday 19 October 2003

would be nice if we could undo this : /ignore -wd * somehow. now everyone in my list is marked red (jay)

PaB|Cogito said on Monday 20 October 2003

PaB|Cogito, you can, see /help /ignore for all the available options (clue: see the -r switch).
