extension – ‘.kvag’ is appended as suffix to the filenames. For example, if a file is
located on your system with the name ‘project.docx’ it will be renamed as
‘project.docx.kvag’ after encryption. Furthermore, this additional Kvag extension
makes the files inaccessible and unreadable. Cyber crooks hold corrupted files as
hostage until the ransom amount is paid.

once encrypted cannot be decrypted easily. Though the task to recover .Kvag files
is irreversible, yet it is followed by a solution. With the help of Kvag decryption

child’s play! The key is safely stored at the developer’s server & is exchanged in
return of hefty ransom. Additionally, the ransom is demanded by a text file named
‘_readme.txt’.
