I am a mIRC user and found a software declare dedicated for the
security of IRC program!
There already have AV and firewall to guard my system. Does I need
this IRC dedicated door installed??

I don't know anything about that software, but IRC is vulnerable, especially
when using certain IRC clients. If you can't or don't want to stop using
IRC, you would do well to look for a secure IRC client or one that you can
configure securely. Adding security software on top of that might or might
not be necessary once you configure the client securely. AV and firewall
help a little but are largely irrelevant to IRC security.
