.XXX File Association 2

An XXX file is a file encrypted by Extractor ransomware, a trojan horse utilized by cybercriminals. It contains a user's file, such as an .XLS or .PDF file, that has been encrypted to prevent it from opening. XXX files became prevalent in 2017 and are similar to .LOCKY files.

More Information

The purpose of Extractor ransomware is to take your files hostage and force you to pay the perpetrator to unlock your files. The virus is a trojan horse that is typically introduced through fake updates or downloads or email attachments. Once the virus affects your computer it begins scrambling your files, renaming them, and encrypting them. The virus then generates a .TXT (ReadMe_XXX.txt) ransom note informing you of the takeover and what you need to do to recover your files.

There is no program currently available to effectively restore your files. If you backup your files you can execute a full system restore. Otherwise, the only known way to decrypt your infected files is to pay the perpetrator for the private key and decrypt program.
