Well, I wake up this morning to find my mirc crashed big time, there appears to be a major bug again that someone has found that causes mirc to crash..

This is mirc 6.16

my logs show I recieved a message from someone:

(****) FIX THIS BUG PLEASE YOU DUMB *BADWORD* MUGGLES FIX THIS BUG PLEASE YOU DUMB *BADWORD* MUGGLES FIX THIS BUG PLEASE YOU DUMB *BADWORD* MUGGLES FIX THIS BUG PLEASE YOU DUMB *BADWORD* MUGGLES FIX THIS BUG PLEASE YOU DUMB *BADWORD* MUGGLES FIX THIS BUG PLEASE YOU DUMB *BADWORD* MUGGLES

I replaced the f word with badword, unfortunatly my logs show nothing else as right after mirc crashed instantly, I do log everything so whatever it is does not get logged, just letting people know to start keeping an eye out to try and track down this new bug. There are control characters in that line as well the ... are control characters aschii string 133, I've tried repasting this to myself in msg, notice, etc with no luck, so not sure what the cause is.

Really, your kidding me?

mayhap "just letting people know to start keeping an eye out to try and track down this new bug."

Try '/debug on' to have mIRC save all traffic sent/recv'd from the server to debug.log. Are you running any scripts?

Some issues have been known (but apparantly fixed) with "SJIS/JIS Conversion", you may wish to disable this anyway (in Options > IRC > Messages) if you have no need for it.

Hope that helps smile

No I dont run scripts other than aliases for op, etc..

It was reported to me that several people pinged out at the same time I did, so again it appears to be some exploit, mirc has never crashed on me like that since I've been on xp, I will turn debug on and see and hopefully be able to catch it if they do so again. thanks for the tip..forgot all about debug..hehe

Can you please let us know which network/channel was
this all about? It will help if we deploy mirc clients there
with debug on..
