Iroffer is a backdoor type Trojan. This virus is a modified version of a file server utility for IRC (commonly referred to as a DCC bot) of the same name, which is used to send files to other IRC users.
The effects of Iroffer are particularly dangerous for IRC users, as it when it is run, this Trojan connects to an IRC server and sends out files from the affected computer.
Iroffer is very difficult to recognize, as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate that it has reached a computer.
