A Framework of Detection and Prevention of mIRC®-Triggered Malicious Web Scripts

Abstract / Excerpt:

The growth of the Internet community in the Philippines has opened a door for intruders to come in. There is a new rampant form of attack that is now being used on web browsers that of which effects are rather frustrating and more irritating than the usual virus. It is rather difficult to detect this problem because it can disguise itself as an ordinary script in a computer. The problem mostly arises from the use of mIRC® where the web address is advertised. There are many possible security solutions to this problem but most of them are too broad for its scope. Businesses such as Internet Café's are asked for licenses from the government to prove the legality of their software. Nowadays it is still expensive for them to buy the licenses here in the Philippines.
