SynopsisAn IRC bouncer is running on this port.
DescriptionBNC, an IRC bouncer from The BNC Project, is running on this port. It proxies communications between IRC clients and servers. This may be done to allow clients without direct network access to connect to servers or to hide client addresses.
Legimate use of such proxies is rare. They are often installed by attackers in order to avoid detection while controlling a 'botnet'.
