What is moo?
moo is the project name of a stats output script for mIRC.
“moo” is often just a generic word used in place of “example” or “test”, or even “foo”. It is of course it is the status output of a cow, usually signifies life. Ask mark.
What is moo.dll?
moo.dll is an mIRC dll designed to return system information for mIRC scripts, that reports various statistics, made by mark.
However, moo.dll is no longer developed as mark says the functions can be done using mIRC’s COM objects and WMI functions, and there is no longer a need for an external dll to gather the information.
What is moo script?
moo script was originally a script I wrote that displays your systems information via mIRC using moo.dll created by mark.
Recently moo script has changed, it no longer requires moo.dll, as it uses mIRC’s COM objects with WMI functions.
This script shows the stats of your system, including: operating system, uptime, cpu, memory, memory usage, screen resolution, network and hard drives, all in all, a useful script.

Is moo.dll a virus or backdoor?
No, this is often a mis-conception as moo.dll is sometimes packaged up with trojans made with mIRC, such as GTbot, it is then used to retreive that systems information. It is NOT possible for moo.dll to be a backdoor or virus as it does not have the functionality to do so, all it does is return a strings of text.
HndlWCare: he may have written what incorporates moo.dll, but he did not write moo.dll — moo.dll was written by a college roommate of one of our ops who has admitted inserting a backdoor into it.
Marky: don’t make me laugh.. check any antivirus website where a virus which has included moo.dll has been disassembled – check the description of moo.dll.. it’s usually “harmless mirc addon” or suchlike.. and you can be sure the anti virus people have disassembled it thoroughly.
I have checked the source code AND disassembled moo.dll, and have found there are NO functions that are harmful.
