    IRC is known for backdoor viruses. The file is most likely a trojan server file that by downloading and opening, you will be installing a trojan program onto your computer. Once the trojan program is installed, the hacker has your IP address from your IRC name/address and will be able to enter your computer and take control. And to know that it asks you to disable your antivirus program it is obviously a virus or trojan server file.

    with file sharing in irc, you give out your ip address
    No sense in worrying about that because as soon as you logon to an IRC server, people can find out your IP address unless you are using a proxy. Also, never download files people just hand over to you, especially if the file is under 2 kb. Most of those are trojans, for example in some of the more popular dalnet channels, people will send files that are .exe but have a .txt icon, you have to be very careful. If the file is large, and is something you would like to see, just download a virus scanner, make sure the definitions are up to date, and scan the file. BTW I made a tutorial about IRC safety you may be interested in, http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=231350

    I have not read this post to its entity, Remember though in IRC when you send a file its a direct link. Just like if you used Kazaa or AIM to send a file. IRC does not scan for viruses, you are exposing yourself to possible viruses. As with email only accept files from people you know and trust. Also, IRC clients have been known to get viruses per say and auto-send stuff to people without the infected person knowing. Usually someone in IRC will tell you if they are going to send you something first.

    Alot of trojans/viruses for IRC are being spread through Kazaa, iMesh, WinMX, etc. So, just be in caution when you open executable files. It might help to scan, but most IRC virii can't be detected. Sorry fellas.
