Kcvp ransomware is one of the most recent Djvu/STOP ransomware variants. This type of malware is particularly dangerous because it encrypts files and then demands money for a decryptor. The reason why this ransomware is dubbed Kcvp ransomware is that it adds .kcvp to encrypted files. You won’t be able to open any of the encrypted files if you don’t first use a decryptor on them. However, getting the decryptor will be challenging. The ransomware distributors will try to sell the decryptor to you for $980 but there are risks that come with paying the ransom. If you have a backup and first completely remove Kcvp ransomware from your computer, file recovery shouldn’t be a problem.

 

Kcvp ranosmware note
When you open an infected file and launch the ransomware, files instantly become encrypted. They also get the .kcvp extension added to them. As an example, text.txt would become text.txt.kcvp if were encrypted. Until a specific decryptor is used on them, files with this extension will not be openable. Because the ransomware primarily targets files that are most valuable to users, it will encrypt all of your photos, videos, documents, and other personal files.

After the encryption process is complete, a _readme.txt ransom note will be dropped in each folder that has encrypted files. How victims can acquire the decryptor is explained in the ransom note. Unfortunately, victims are asked to pay a $980 ransom. It’s a very questionable offer but the email also explains that victims who get in touch with the cybercriminals within the first 72 hours will receive a 50% discount. It is not advised to engage with cybercriminals or pay a ransom because there is no law obligating cybercriminals to help victims. Many victims in the past paid the ransom but did not receive a decryptor.
Kcvp ransomware files

There is currently no free way to recover files without a backup. There is no free decryptor available for Kcvp ransomware, despite the fact that malware researchers occasionally do release free decryptors to help ransomware victims. Variants of the Djvu/STOP ransomware encrypt data using online keys, which means every user has a different key. Decryptor creators would require your unique key in order for their software to decrypt your files. Because of this, it’s unlikely that a free Kcvp ransomware decryptor will be made available until those keys are released by the malware’s developers. Although it is unlikely to work, you can try using Emsisoft’s free decryptor for Djvu/STOP.

If you have a backup of your files, you can start recovering them as soon as you delete Kcvp ransomware. We strongly recommend using an anti-virus program because attempting to remove ransomware manually could cause further harm to the computer.

How does ransomware enter computers?

A computer can become infected with malware in several different ways. Users’ poor online habits are often what lead to malware infections. For example, you risk encountering malware if you open unsolicited email attachments, click on unknown links, use torrents to pirate copyrighted content, etc.

One of the most common methods for malware to infect computers is through users opening infected email attachments. Malicious emails are sometimes disguised to appear as though they were sent by legitimate companies, though the efforts are frequently extremely poor. It’s important to note that while the emails themselves are safe to open, the attached files are not. Fortunately, malicious emails are typically easy to identify.

Grammar and spelling errors in emails supposedly sent by legitimate companies (such as banks, parcel delivery services, etc.) are the most obvious warning sign. For example, it is almost certain that an email is malicious if it’s supposedly sent by a parcel delivery service yet contains numerous obvious grammar and spelling mistakes. Spelling and grammar mistakes make an email appear unprofessional, therefore legitimate businesses will make every effort to avoid them.

Another warning sign is when someone addresses you by using a generic term (e.g. User, Member, or Customer) instead of your name. You will always be addressed by name in emails from businesses whose services you use since it gives the emails a more personal feel.

By looking at the sender’s email address, you can also tell if an email is malicious. Always check the email address of the sender if an email asks you to open an attachment, click on a link, etc. The email is probably spam or malicious if the sender’s address seems random. Make sure the sender is who they claim to be even if an email address seems to be legitimate. Often, a Google search is sufficient.

It’s important to remember that some malicious campaigns might be considerably more sophisticated if they target a single individual. If cybercriminals have access to the target’s personal information, they can make their malicious emails look much more convincing. For instance, the target might receive an email that’s mistake-free, addresses them by name, and has some information that would give the email credibility. It is usually advised to scan email attachments with an anti-virus program or at the very least VirusTotal before opening them for this reason.

Finally, malware can also be distributed using torrents. It is well known that torrent sites are full of torrents that contain malware. Torrent sites are often poorly moderated, which allows malicious actors to easily upload torrents. Malware is frequently found in torrents for TV series, video games, movies, and other forms of entertainment.

How to delete Kcvp ransomware

You should delete Kcvp ransomware with an anti-malware program because ransomware is a sophisticated infection. You run the risk of causing significantly more damage if you try to do it manually. You can open your backup and begin restoring your files once the ransomware has been completely removed.

Users without backups will find file recovery much harder. Unfortunately, there currently is no free Kcvp ransomware decryptor available. Although it is not currently available, a free Kcvp ransomware decryptor could be released in the future. You should create a backup for encrypted files while you wait for a free Kcvp ransomware decryptor. NoMoreRansom is an excellent source for decryptors.
