Brief Description 

    

IRC.Bnc is a backdoor type Trojan that opens a communications port.

Through this port, a hacker could launch an attack and gain access to the resources of the infected computer. In order to do this, IRC.Bnc uses mIRC chat channels.

IRC.Bnc does not use any specific means to spread. It can reach computers through any of the usual means used by viruses: floppy disks, CD-ROMs, e-mail messages with infected attachments, Internet downloads, FTP, etc.

Visible Symptoms 

    

IRC.Bnc is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate that it has infected a computer.
