New mIRC security issue
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.
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.
