|← 1.2||ZNC 1.4||1.6.0 →|
|This is an old ZNC version. If you still use it, please consider upgrading to 1.7.1.|
This release is done to fix a denial of service attack through webadmin. After authentication, users can crash ZNC through a use-after-delete. Additionally, a number of fixes and nice, low-risk additions from our development branch is included.
In detail, these are:

- Warn people that making ZNC listen on port 6667 might cause problems with some web browsers.
