Another mIRC Exploit

Post by RandomNumber » Mon Aug 01, 2005 7:12 am

Theres a exploit in mirc I dont want to go into details but it involves inviting and calling of identifers heres a reference link http://trout.snt.utwente.nl/ubbthreads/ ... e=0#133246 I was wondering can you spamfilter an invite? Is an invite treated like a notice? B/c if so I can atleast eliminate the identifer issue easily.

No, you cannot spamfilter an invite. That link also has no information on what the "exploit" actually is, or how it is done. It only tells me there is a so-called "exploit" in the Auto-Join on Invite setting in mIRC.

People probably won't be too happy about this, but it seems the only way to stop this "exploit" on networks is to deny channels with $ in their name.

Code: Select all

deny channel {
  mask *$*;
  reason "Possible mIRC exploit channel";
};
