Iroffer.1213 is a backdoor type Trojan that connects to an IRC server and sends out files from the affected computer. 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.1213 are particularly dangerous for IRC users, as it uses programs like mIRC to launch attacks on other computers.
Iroffer.1213 is very difficult to recognize, as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate that it has reached the computer.
