Kindest Ransomware isn’t at all what its name indicates as being “kind.” In fact, Kindest Ransomware is quite the opposite of being kind as it is known to take several files on an infected PC and encrypt them so they are no longer accessible. The encryption action is undefeatable unless a proper decryption key is used, which is sold by the Kindest Ransomware threat as part of a ransom scheme for over $800 in Bitcoins.
Those who may give into the demands of Kindest Ransomware and pay the hefty ransom fee may or may not receive the promised decryption code to restore the encrypted files. Due to the uncertainty of malware like Kindest Ransomware, it is best that victimized PC users remove the threat using an antimalware application and then proceed to restore the encrypted files from an available backup copy of the affected system’s hard drive.
