Win.Trojan.Ircnite-27 is a Trojan that propagates as an exploit kit using VBScript, the Active Scripting language developed by Microsoft, to spread itself to infected computers. Unlike other exploit kits, Win.Trojan.Ircnite-27 doesn't need to exploit vulnerabilities in Java, Adobe or other applications to operate as the malware infection. By using VBScript, cybercriminals can run a malevolent code without downloading an actual executable file and without using an exploit. The infected website connected with Win.Trojan.Ircnite-27 wants the computer user to run an add-on called 'Microsoft Script Runtime' from Microsoft. Most likely PC users will click the 'Allow' button considering that the program appears genuine. The malware infection dispersed in this attack is found as Win.Trojan.Ircnite-27.
