This version of mIRC is primarily a security release. mIRC users are advised to upgrade due to a security issue that may allow someone to trigger a remote code execution vulnerability in some situations.

  • Fixed Clear History log files option not deleting empty nested folders in logs folder.
  • Fixed $sha1()/$hmac() bug that caused &binvar data to be overwritten.
  • Added $zip() identifier that adds support for AES encrypted ZIP files.
  • Extended $rand() to allow negative number values and changed RNG algorithm.
  • Added $rands() identifier that returns a cryptographically secure random number.
  • Fixed $hfind() not reporting an error when the called alias returns an error.
  • Fixed $asctime() 'z' bug to work with non-standard offset timezones.
  • Extended IRCv3 support for CAP NEW to request supported tokens automatically.
