Chaos can ensue when Kvag Ransomware slithers into your operating system and encrypts your personal file. The files are changed, and, unfortunately, you cannot read them using any available applications. Basically, if your files were encrypted, they are now stuck, and you cannot do much about it. Is there a tool that could decrypt your files? That is a possibility, and we discuss this further in the report. What is most important to understand is that the solution offered by cybercriminals should not be taken seriously and that deleting the infection is incredibly important. Do you know how to remove Kvag Ransomware if it has invaded your operating system? Do not worry if you lack information about this because we are here to provide you with it. Continue reading, and if anything raises additional questions, do not hesitate to add them to the comments section below for our team to address them.
Kvag Ransomware is identical to Domn Ransomware, Moka Ransomware, Zatrov Ransomware, Vesrato Ransomware, and many other malicious infections that derive from the STOP Ransomware family. These infections are usually seen spreading via emails (misleading messages trick users into opening corrupted attachments) or using remote access vulnerabilities. After execution, they encrypt personal files found on the system, and then they add unique extensions to these files. Kvag Ransomware adds the “.kvag” extension. As you can see, most threats are identified by the extensions they create, and that is because there are hundreds of STOP Ransomware variants, and since they are identical, the main unique feature – which is the extension – is used to separate them. After encryption, all infections create a file named “_readme.txt,” and the message carried by this file is always the same. Even the email addresses that the attackers use for contact (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org) are usually the same, which is why we assume that the same attacker – or group of attackers – is behind them all.
The .TXT file delivers what we know as the ransom note. It informs that files were encrypted, and it also informs that a special decryption tool that only the creator of Kvag Ransomware can provide you with is the only tool that can help. Isn’t that convenient? The attackers suggest paying $490 in three days to obtain the decryptor, but that, most likely, is a scam. Once you contact the attackers using the provided email address, they will send you information about the ransom payment. Once you pay it, the attackers will get what they want, but no one will be able to force them to give you the decryptor. Unfortunately, many victims learn that the hard way. Hopefully, you have not paid the ransom yet. The message also includes a unique ID number, and if it ends with “t1,” that means that your files were encrypted using an offline key. In this case, you might be able to decrypt some of your files for free using a decryptor created by malware researchers. Of course, it is most ideal if you have backups and if you can delete Kvag Ransomware and then replace the corrupted files without having to pay anyone or install anything.
You need to remove Kvag Ransomware despite whether or not you can recover the files. Contacting the attackers and giving them your money is not recommended, and, hopefully, you have not been fooled yet. The instructions below show the common elements of this malware that require removal. Can we guarantee that every victim will be able to delete Kvag Ransomware using this guide? We cannot. Also, other threats could exist, and the system will remain vulnerable after removal. Overall, you need to think about the ransomware, other threats, and the protection of your system as a whole, and we advise installing anti-malware software to take care of it all. This software will automatically eliminate all malicious threats, and it will also ensure that your operating system is protected at all times. If you choose the manual removal route, do not forget to take care of your system’s security because new infections could invade it before you know it.
