There is a virus type disease called rose rosette and it is causd my a microscopic mite. They usually don't attack hybrid teas mainly shrub type roses. The new growth has bright red distorted leaves and excessive thorniness on the canes. The bush usually dies within one year. This disease can be transmitted by cuttings.
