The Weechat project reports:

After changing the options or, the TLS verification function is lost. Consequently, any connection to a server with TLS is made without verifying the certificate, which could lead to a man-in-the-middle attack. Connection to IRC servers with TLS is affected, as well as any connection a server made by a plugin or a script using the function hook_connect.
