What is a KKK file?

A KKK file is a file encrypted by the KKK Virus, a trojan horse utilized by cybercriminals. It contains a user's file, such as a .WMV or .XLSX file, encrypted with the RSA algorithm and AES-128 ciphers. KKK files became prevalent in June 2017.

More Information

The KKK Virus is highly dangerous malware and is commonly referred to as ransomware. The purpose of the virus is to take your files hostage and force you to pay the perpetrator to unlock your files. The virus is a trojan horse that may be disguised as an Adobe Flash Player or java update or as an email message attachment. Once the virus affects your computer it begins scrambling your files, renaming them, and encrypting them. The virus then generates a ransom note informing you of the takeover and what you are meant to do to recover your files.

How to open a KKK file

No known program can restore KKK files to their original state. The best way to recover your files is to retrieve them from a recent backup or perform a System Restore to a point before your computer was infected.


FileInfo.com recommends you never pay a ransom to decrypt files encrypted by ransomware. Paying a ransom encourages ransomware distributors to continue their efforts, and there is no guarantee that paying a ransom will give you access to your files. Instead, you should restore your data from a recent backup created before the ransomware infected your computer.
