La_Diosa.2585 is a virus that spreads to other computers by copying its code to other files or programs.
La_Diosa.2585 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.
La_Diosa.2585 uses the following infection strategies:
- Resident: once it has been run, the virus goes memory resident and stops functions belonging to the operating system. Therefore, every time the operating system or an application tries to access any of these functions, the virus will activate and infect new files.
- Polymorphic: it encrypts itself in a different way with each infection it carries out. In order to do this, it uses different keys and operations. As a result, the virus has different characteristics in each new infection, which makes it difficult for antivirus pro-grams to detect this virus.
