AntiVir False Positive on stdio.dll

We got a report that the AntiVir antivirus program was giving a false positive virus alert on stdio.dll inside the Suite download of Mircryption. It's not a virus. You don't need stdio.dll for normal use of mircryption so if you are paranoid about it just unpack the setup exe manually using winzip and delete the file. Details about stdio.dll can be found in its directory in the download..

KVirc Irc client adds support for blow/fish/mircryption Encryption

The very nice open source KVirc irc client has added support for encrypting and decrypting compatibly with mircryption/blow/fish. It even supports the new cbc mode! KVirc works on both windows and *nix (the new code is in the cvs release now and will make its way into official snapshots soon).

Java Mircryption Routines

Due to the dilligent work of several java coders, there is now a java class that can be used to encrypt and decrypt mircryption/blow/fish text. This was a non-trivial task due to oddities in java treatment of text and the non-standard base64 routines. See Extra Downloads section..

Mircryptified Psybnc

We modified the latest psybnc (2.3.42) to support mircryption (and fish/blow), including the new cbc encryption keys. Just prefix keys with 'mcps;' or /cbc;'.

By running this psybnc on your local pc, you can make any irc client compatible with mircryption (!). Read more in the Extra Downloads section

Major New Feature: Blowfish CBC Mode

We finally decided that the increased security of CBC mode encryption was too valuable to be postponed until version 2.

Simply use the prefix 'cbc:' in front of your key value to employ CBC mode for a specific window/channel.

You can read more about using the new CBC mode here.

New Download Packages - Mircryption is now packaged as an installer to make it easier for new users and upgraders. However, you do *NOT* have to use the setup program if you do not want to. Since the installer executables are are zip-compatible, you can unpack them manually with any unzip program (even the unix unzip command) if you prefer.

Linux / BSD / MacOSX Support is HERE! - at the bottom of this page you can download the first sneak beta release of the xchat 1.9x compatible mircryption plugin(!). Beta testers please report experiences on the mircryption forum.
