New mIRC security issue

Posted by Ferg on Wednesday 24 March 2004

There is a new security issue with regards to mIRC that has just been made public.

The issue lies in mIRCs DCC handling code. Whilst we cannot give you specific details, we can tell you the issue affects ALL version of mIRC up to and including version 6.14.

Currently the only fix is to ignore ALL DCC requests through the mIRC command: /ignore -wd *

We suggest all users check www.mirc.com regularly for a fix for this issue and future updates to mIRC.

UPDATE:
Last night we reported that there was a new mIRC exploit. Our sources were wrong. There isn't.

The exploit itself lies in a particular CTCP VERSION reply changer script, we can't disclose which one.

We apologise for any problems or worries the original news post may have caused.

Please log in to post comments.
Yeah everyone, keep your client safe and get your milk every day!

stelki said on Wednesday 24 March 2004

marzipan said on Wednesday 24 March 2004

it seems as if some people seem to like exploits in mirc in order to promote their favourite client. D:

I will not tell you directly how to make yourself vulnerable, but if you must find out, check mIRC\'s help pages. One options is, if you are expecting a DCC from someone, is use /ignore -x nick which excludes the specified nickname from the ignored list. If you prefer a graphic way, press Alt-B, goto the Control tab and choose Ignore from the pull-down box. There you can control the ignore list.

salteh said on Wednesday 24 March 2004

aaah how can i remove the ignore? it sucks that anyone is red :>

dgh{raginger} said on Wednesday 24 March 2004

I heard it\'s a hoax. How serious are you about this? Did you had a chance to \'test\' this? You\'d talk with Krejt about that. He\'s curious.

omfg :(

yep, we are all going to die fuckers ! enjoy the silence !

It\'s been identified as a vulnerability in a little-used script. It is NOT a problem with mIRC itself. There is no threat to the majority of mIRC users. IRC-Junkie.org jumped the gun by reporting it as an exploit that affects mIRC. Everyone else followed the leader, just in case there really was an exploit (stuff posted on IRC-Junkie is usually accurate for the most part).

braska said on Thursday 25 March 2004

Strange that mIRC has so many bugs, just with DCC..

r3fl3x said on Thursday 25 March 2004

too bad to hear such news :|. I wonder how long it takes to fix/patch this exploit.

vertical said on Thursday 25 March 2004

Heh. As i said. Hoax. Now THIS is embarrassing. :))

synflood said on Thursday 25 March 2004

i love my mIRC 6.03 ^_^

mgtatdev said on Thursday 25 March 2004

#23 you\'re still vulnerable as the exploit exists and affects 6.00 right through to 6.11, the exploit for 6.12/14 simply does *not* exist! and as for nubnubscript users, you no longer have to see red again.

dave said on Thursday 25 March 2004

#22 not embarrassing: it shows how much Qnet is concerned about its users, better let everybody have an extra ignore rule (with extra for nnscript some red nicks) then a mass exploited public :)
