IRC.Wp32 is a backdoor type Trojan that is dropped in computers by a worm called Zasi.
IRC.Wp32 creates a large number of files on the computer and opens the communications port 3799. A hacker could use this port to launch a remote attack and gain access to the resources of the computer.
IRC.Wp32 is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any warnings or message that indicate that it has reached a computer.
