Lorez is a resident virus that doesn’t have any destructive effects, which can reach computers through the usual means used by viruses: floppy disks, CD-ROMs, e-mail message with infected attachments, Internet downloads, FTP, etc.
The size of the PE type files in a computer infected by Lorez will increase and the system will slow down significantly.
The only indication that Lorez has infected a computer is that the system slows down for no apparent reason.
