Problems with MIRC

Ever since I moved from cable to plusnet ADSL I am getting lots of problems with IRC. I keep getting disconnected with the following error :

* [10053] Software caused connection abort

May be totally unrelated to the broadband move but thought it would be worth mentioning anyway. Any ideas folks ?

Many Thanks !

Problems with MIRC

It's likely a IRC server under a dos attack ie Qnet during any time of the day. So find a local server and use it but not to join not via the load balance of the main IP address.

Check your using the latest version of mIRC because an exploit was found recently, and if your not using a patched version, people may be able to crash your client.

There are two exploits you are talking of.

One would work regardless of settings and a update was made. A second one on the newer version requires a speicifc set of options set.

Both of these exploits cause mIRC to crash and exit with a exception error. Connection aborting is a seperate issue.
