Iroffer.A is a Hacking Tool. Though these programs are legal and useful tools when they are appropriately used, a hacker could take advantage of them in order to carry out malicious actions.
Iroffer.A is a file server for IRC. It is very similar to FTP or web servers, but unlike these, the user can download files using the DCC protocol instead of a web browser.
Iroffer.A is not a risk by itself, but it is used by several worms that spread by means of the mIRC application.
Iroffer.A is difficult to recognize, as it does not show any messages or warnings that indicate it is present in the computer.
