Brief Description 

    

Lozyt.A is a Trojan that ends several processes belonging, among others, to security tools, such as antivirus programs and firewalls. This way, such programs would stop working, which would leave the computer vulnerable against the attack of malware.

It also connects to a certain server, from which it attempts to download Adware/SafeError.

Lozyt.A does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Lozyt.A is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
