Gotta love trillian
Hey look at this fun little message from bugtraq:
Aww, that sucks. And he even included the exploit code....
Trillian's irc modules suffers from a buffer overflow. This allows an attacker to execute code of their choice. I have attempted to contact the trillian developers about this issue with no success.
Oh wait, whats this....another message from bugtraq....
Wait, that looks like 2 more vulnerabilities. At least he didn't include an exploit for all the script kiddies....
Vulnerability : Format strings bug and buffer overflow in the IRC client of Trillian
And people always ask me why I don't like that program.....Hummm...

I just dont use IRC with Tillian. In fact I don't use IRC at all because of all the exploits which have been found in it. Just my personal preference I guess but that me.. and my TCW

Now Teufel , that was uncalled for. What does that have to do with the current discussion at hand? Naughty, naughty...
As for the Trillian bug, I have to agree with Soulman but go one step further: That is why I do not use instant messengers, period. I remember when ICQ had tons of exploits (I do not know about now, it's been a while), and that's what turned me off completely to the whole IM scene.
As for IRC, I never really used IRC until AntiOnline, and I have to say it's very, very nice.

I used trillian once and tried to upload my buddy lists and kept crashing so i just ditched it. But it looked pretty nice when u download some of the skins.
