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.
