Mogera Ransomware

What is Mogera Ransomware?

All Windows users need to listen up. Mogera Ransomware is on the loose, and it could go after your personal files next. This malicious infection was created by cyber criminals, who are interested in one thing and one thing only, which is to make money. Unfortunately, unlike the rest of us, these criminals are not willing to earn their money in an honest way. Instead, they turn to illicit activity. Unfortunately, ransomware infections are usually very lucrative because they can be used to encrypt personal files, after which, the victims might believe that they have no other option but to follow the instructions and pay the ransom. If it is the threat we are discussing in this report that encrypted your personal files, you are in luck because a free decryptor called “Stop Decrypter” already exists, and so there is no need to pay any attention to the demands made by the attackers. Unfortunately, that is not very common, and so if you do not want to face a more destructive file-encryptor in the future, you need to think about your virtual security. First, let’s delete Mogera Ransomware.test

How does Mogera Ransomware work?

Did Mogera Ransomware encrypt your personal files after you downloaded a strange program or clicked a strange file or link sent via email? If you remember doing something along the lines, you might be able to figure out how this malware got in; however, most victims will be unable to tell. The infection is silent during its entrance, and if it is not stopped and removed by the existing security software, it can start encrypting your personal files silently too. Mogera Ransomware encrypts photos, archives, documents, videos, and all other files that you cannot replace unless backups exist. Although there are infections that encrypt all files on the infected systems, most focus on personal files because it is easier to convince victims to pay for their recovery. Skymap Ransomware, INFOWAIT Ransomware, and all other infections from the STOP Ransomware family go after personal files too. After encryption, you can find a unique extension attached to their names. In our case, it is the “.mogera” extension. Next to the encrypted files, you should also find a file named “_readme.txt,” which delivers a message from the attackers.

The creator of Mogera Ransomware wants you to message them. You are instructed to do that using Telegram (@datarestore) or email (, You should not contact the attackers, and not only because a free decryptor is already available. It is dangerous to communicate with them in all cases because you do not know what kind of files or links could be sent to you by them. Even if they do not try to scam you right away, they could use your email address days, weeks, or even months later. The ransom note represented by Mogera Ransomware demands $490 in return for a decryptor that, allegedly, could restore the corrupted files. Even if the free decryptor was not available already, we would not recommend paying the ransom. First of all, paying the ransom means supporting cyber criminals financially. Second, there are no guarantees when it comes to receiving the decryptor. In fact, we do not even know if it exists. This malware is exactly why you need to have your files backed up because if the original files get encrypted, you do not want to lose them and your money.
