KDC files contain virus definitions where these definitions are used to detect and quarantine viruses. These files are also useful in the process of removing malicious software known as the system rescue process. They are usually downloaded in order for the software and these KDC files to be updated and maintain the function of the software in detecting and removing viruses form the system. KDC files usually look like this: base001.kdc, base002.kdc wherein they are headed by a three-letter prefix and contains a three-digit counter as a number for file updates.KDC files can be found in the /Library/Application Support/Kaspersky Lab/KAV/Bases/ directory in a MAC OS.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .kdc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .kdc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
