This virus goes memory resident when the user of an infected computer runs an infected file. Then, all the EXE files run on the affected computer will be infected.

LittleBrothers does not have a destructive payload and reaches computers through the usual means used by viruses: floppy disks, e-mail messages, FTP, etc.
