Kkll Ransomware is one of those programs you would never want to encounter. This malicious infection enters a target system surreptitiously, encrypts all the personal files, and then requires that you pay a ransom fee to restore those files. Needless to say, users should never transfer the ransom fees because there is no guarantee these programs would restore the encrypted files. Instead, you need to focus on removing Kkll Ransomware from your system. You can do that by following the removal instructions at the bottom of this description. If you don’t feel like removing Kkll Ransomware on your own, you can also invest in a licensed antispyware tool.
This program comes from a very well-known ransomware infection family. Kkll Ransomware belongs to the STOP Ransomware group, and so it means that some of the files affected by this program COULD be decrypted. Please note, however, that there is no 100% that all of your data can be restored, so you shouldn’t forget the importance of a file backup. After all, there are tons of ransomware infections out there, and you should always be ready to fight them. File backups remain the best remedy against ransomware infections.
Aside from file backups, it’s also a good idea to learn about ransomware distribution tactics to find out how to avoid similar infections. As far as we know, Kkll Ransomware usually spreads through spam email attachments. Users download and launch ransomware infections without even realizing they’re doing that. The problem is that the files that distribute such infections often look like legitimate documents, and so users get tricked into opening them. Of course, if we all were a little bit more attentive, we would notice that something is off about the email message that comes with those files. Maybe it’s too urgent? Perhaps it’s too out of the blue?
Either way, it is possible to avoid the likes of Kkll Ransomware as long as you don’t open every single file you receive from unknown parties. Also, you can start scanning the received files with a security tool of your choice. If the security tool finds something suspicious about a certain file, you most definitely can (and should!) remove it.
Now, when Kkll Ransomware enters the target system, it works just like any other member of the STOP Ransomware family. It encrypts all the personal files and then it displays the following ransom note that is dropped into the C:\ directory:
Don’t worry, you can return all your files!
All your files like photos, databases, documents and other important are encrypted with strongest encryption and unique key.
The only method of recovering files is to purchase decrypt tool and unique key for you.
Price of private key and decrypt software is $980.

No matter whether they give you a discount, you should NOT contact these criminals. As mentioned, it might be possible to restore at least some of your files with the public decryption tool. This can be done if Kkll Ransomware used an offline encryption key to lock up your data.
On the other hand, you shouldn’t keep all of your eggs in one basket. It would be a good idea to go through other possible file recovery options. And if you haven’t considered doing it yet, you should definitely get yourself a file backup. While it might be easy to deal with Kkll Ransomware, you can never know when something more dangerous will barge at your doorstep. It’s better to be safe than sorry, so invest in the safest cybersecurity practices today.
