IRC/Generic is a generic detection for malicious Internet Relay Chat (IRC) script data files that are used to spread malware.

Installation

IRC/Generic is installed by another malware process and is present as an IRC script file in the same folder as the affected installed IRC chat application (i.e. mIRC).

Payload

Spreads other malware

When an affected IRC chat application is launched, it loads Worm:IRC/Generic and executes its script instructions. The script commonly instructs the chat client to send a locally stored file to other IRC users that join chat channels. The file sent is commonly other installed malware, or a copy of the worm that installed IRC/Generic.

Aliases

  • Worm:IRC/Generic(Microsoft)
