Title: MIRC Chat Users Vulnerable To New Attack
There is a security vulnerability in the mIRC online chat program, versions 5.91
and earlier, that could allow a cyber attacker to remotely run malicious
programs on the computers running the software. An exploit was published
detailing the means to exploit the buffer over-flow flaw. The individual who
discovered the flaw alerted the company that developed the program, and waited
to publish the exploit until mIRC version 6 was released February 3, 2002.
