What is file-encoding malware

QkG Ransomware is file-encrypting ransomware. Malicious downloads and spam emails are the most likely way you obtained the contamination. Ransomware is an extremely dangerous piece of malicious program since it encodes data, and requests for payment in exchange for getting them back. If ransomware researchers manage to crack the ransomware, they may release a free decoding tool, or if you have backup, you may easily recover your data. But otherwise, there is small chance you will restore your files. Paying the ransom can seem like the solution to some users, but we must alert you that it does not ensure data recovery. Hackers already encoded your data, what’s stopping them from being even more horrible by not recovering your data after you pay. Since paying may not be the most trustworthy way, you should just erase QkG Ransomware.

File-encrypting malware doesn’t need sophisticated spread methods, and contamination usually occurs via spam email. An infected file is attached to an email and sent to a lot of users.
