    Ok so today I was on my computer and I noticed on my Xchat Aqua IRC client I kept disconnecting on one of the servers I was on. I checked my internet thinking it was my ISP dropping and it was running fine. I checked my computer and it was ok because I had AIM msn and all that running. So i get on my other computer and use a browser based IRC client to see if it does it there and when my xchat disconnected I didnt disconnect on the browser. I then noticed.. there was a $%&%$# who must have found an exploit threw DCC for xchat because he was typeing things like "DCC send tralala 0 0 0" and I would disconnect.

    So my question is did anyone know about this or know how to fix it? because its really annoying and I cant find anything to stop him.

    That has nothing to do with xchat, but your router, dcc exploits port 6667 that you are connect through xchat. look it up online for more info, but you need to patch your router to newest firmware.
