Lebreat.B is a worm that downloads other malware to the affected computer, such as the worm FlyVB.D.
Additionally, it launches DoS (Denial of Service) attacks against the web page www.symantec.com.
It also attempts to disable several Windows tools, such as Task Manager, Windows XP firewall, Windows Update, etc. However, it fails to do so due to several programming errors.

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