Is it safe?

Is it safe?

Postby KAZENOMANAZASHI » 21 Jun 2011, 15:57

Recently I started visiting SMC IRC channel and my PC have catched some viruses. I did resolve my problems, but I do not know from where I did catch these... Maybe from Rizon chat? I did read somewhere IRC is not very safe... If there is some advanced IRC users tell me please, can I really have viruses from IRC channels? Thanx in advance! I did open chat using Opera browser.
By the way, trivia play is great, but I can't add some questions on it whatever I try!

You definitely didn't get any viruses in our channel. Check your IRC client first and never click any links given to you by random people. Secondly, some mIRC files are miscorrectly recognized by few antivirus programs as viruses.

Thank you! So i'll be sure in the safety now!
But AddTrivia seems to be too much complicated for me. I don't get at all how to add my question!

When the trivia comes back around we can show you on IRC. It's very fast and simple.

I'am not a very advanced user of mIRC but I'll tell you even security web sites aren't REALLY safe, just pay attention where you click and enjoy the internet at its best. :)

I find IRC really safe and never had any problems with it. I find it really safe but make sure you have a very good anti-virus just in case. I personally recommend ESET Nod32 antivirus.

I love the downloading speed offered on the IRC channel so much quicker then the torrents. Only problem is you cant upload what you download at the same time which i don't really like.
