Port is extremely old and the version in ports is no longer supported by the unrealircd team. The latest version is Can we get this updated, please?

This issue needs a patch to progress, and the port needs a maintainer

I'll take this. If someone can assist with a patch, that would be greatly appreciated

As announced a year ago, all support for UnrealIRCd 3.2.x will stop after December 31, 2016 [1]

All UnrealIRCd versions up to and including 4.0.14 can be crashed by a remote user ... <snip> [2]

UnrealIRCd 4.0.18 (stable) is now available for download. This is a recommended upgrade because it fixes some memory leaks / security issues present in 4.0.17 and earlier version [3]

The above security issues should have VuXML entries added (in addition to the 5.x update).
