I upgraded to 6.2. When I tried to DCC a file I got a message from Nortons that a Trojan worm was blocked. Happened whenever I tried sending

Does 6.2 have Spyware built in?

umm no. The file you sent would be the file with a trojan not mirc itself.

My Counterspy software (Sunbelt Software) quarantined my 2-3 years old version of mIRC which has been working perfectly until a few days ago. It said that mIRC was carrying " a backdoor trojan" and could be setting things up for installation of a worm. I wasn't trying to send anything when mIRc tried to access the net and set off the alarms. My Norton Internet security software also detected a trojan on (not in) mIRC. Is this a compatabilityproblem with Counterspy, or has a hacker managerd to compromise mIRC? confused

More likely a new worm signature (in a newly downloaded data file for the virus programs) that looks something like some code in mIRC. (BTW, there's no distiction between "in a program" and "on a program". It's either in part of the filespace of the program or it isn't)

Instead of looking at mIRC try looking at your Nortons. There are a ton of people who have the same problem and most all of them actaully have a worm but the others have their Nortons' which had recently updated. It updates automatically every day doesn't it?

Just press Alt-R and see what scripts are loaded. If you find any that you don't recognize, then unload them. It's unlikely that anything not loaded into mIRC in Alt-R is going to be a mIRC issue. Trojans that use mIRC use scripting in basically all cases, though I'm sure someone managed to control mIRC from outside using DDE or COM or some kind of send keys program or whatever... but that's going to be rare to find (if at all).
