Fhkf ransomware is a crypto-virus that is able to lock certain files on the infected computer, mostly documents, spreadsheets, archives, databases, images, videos, and similar data. If it manages to encrypt the target files, they will have a new extension with identifiable sets of strings and a .fhkf suffix.
Computer viruses are harmful programs that can convey through various methods and usually using Internet connection and compromised files. Most computer viruses can be detected by security programs like Anti-virus and Anti-malware. However, there are still some that can conceal their presence by exploiting vulnerabilities on the operating system.
