Lolol is a worm that uses the peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing program KaZaA in order to spread rapidly. KaZaA is a program that allows users connected to the Internet to swap music, video, text, images, etc.
Lolol creates a large number of files, which it names after movies or video games. This worm tries to trick KaZaA users by enticing them to download infected files.
This worm uses up a large amount of the hard disk space by making many copies of itself.
Lolol is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
