Asunto: DALnet: [Exploits Prevention Team] SECURITY ALERT - ALL mIRC
USERS PLEASE READ.
A serious vulnerability has been discovered in all versions of mIRC
up to version 5.91 (mIRC 6.0 is not affected). This vulnerability can
allow malicious users to gain unauthorized access to your system remotely
and potentially plant trojan horse programmes or steal data. This
vulnerability affects all versions of mIRC prior to 6.0 running on all
current Microsoft Windows platforms but is particularly serious for
users who also routinely use Internet Explorer as their web browser.
This vulnerability and the associated exploit are in the public domain
and are possibly being exploited already. All users of mIRC prior to
the current version are STRONGLY ADVISED TO UPGRADE IMMEDIATELY.
Upgrades to version mIRC 6.0 are available for download from the mIRC
website at http://www.mirc.co.uk. As always, please ensure you
download only from a trusted source.
