I use mirc every couple of months. Just for kicks I clicked on their website (mirc) and noticed my copy of the program is TWO years old (about 5 versions behind). In Secunia, my "Patched" list shows the old version, which according to the mirc website is very insecure. Why didn't Secunia PSI alert me to the updates long ago?


In advance, thanks!

Good question! The Secunia site reports an unpatched vulnerability in mIRC 6.34 dated 2008-10-03. http://secunia.com/advisories/32102/
The mIRC site says that security release 6.35 was released on October 17th 2008. http://www.mirc.com/news.html

It looks like Secunia may not be aware of the newer version which contains the security patch.

My version was 6.21.0.0 ! I've had that one for quite some time. I updated to the newer 6.35 version. Secunia still says I have 6.21.0.0 . The newer version is not listed in Secunia.

That's odd. Ensure you're using the Advanced interface mode by clicking on "Advanced" in the upper-right corner of PSI. Look for mIRC in both the Insecure and Patched panes. Where does Installation Path show 6.21 to be? Is 6.35 mentioned in either pane?
