Copy for example the string "#aaaaaaaaa unable to join channel (need correct key)" and hold STRG+V in the command line (so that it pastes it some times) and mirc will crash quietly. I think it's some kind of buffer overflow.

Bug found on mIRC 6.12/WinXP SP1.

Can't reproduce here.. STRG+V you mean CTRL+V ?
Maybe you use some scripts.. And that scripts cause the crash..

WIN98SE M6.12

I could not reproduce this in the Status window or a channel window. Tested on mIRC 6.12 XP Pro.

Sorry yeah it was CTRL+V. It's just because it's STRG on German keyboards :P

It only works on channels. Copy some string, hold CTRL
down and hold V. If it works it should be something like this:

<nick> [14:09:57] -efnet.blablablabla.bla- *** No Ident response[14:09:57] -efnet.blablablabla.bla- *** No Ident response[14:09:57] -efnet.blablablabla.bla- *** No Ident response[14:09:57] -efnet.blablablabla.bla- *** No Ident response[14:09:57] -efnet.blablablabla.bla- *** No Ident response[14:09:57] -efnet.blablablabla.bla- *** No Ident response[14:09:57] -efnet.blablablabla.bla- *** No Ident response[14:09:57] -efnet.blablablabla.bla- *** No Ide

* nick (~ident@abc.abc.abc.abc) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)

It's not like the server would disconnect you or something, mIRC really crashes.

Also tested on mIRC 6.12 (with and without scripts) / Win2000 (without SP).

Same here, tried that same string, made mIRC max out the editbox and send about 50 times, tried other strings, no crash.
XP sp1 / 6.12

Strange. Maybe efnet servers are sending some special command (when flooding) that mIRC can't handle.
Anyone tried it on efnet?

No crash here (v6.12 @ Win98), tested on EFNet (and more intensively on my Unreal server).
