Lokky is a resident type virus that infects executable files with an EXE extension.
In addition, Lokky is a Stealth virus. This means that while the virus is memory resident, every time a file is opened, the virus deletes itself. By doing this, the file is virus free and when it is closed, the virus infects it again.
Lokky is difficult to identify, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has infected a computer.
