Where does Mole02 Ransomware come from?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer a new narrative when it comes to the Mole02 Ransomware distribution. As our research suggests, this program usually spreads via spam emails, and that is actually the most common ransomware distribution method. It is rather annoying to know that users still fall for this scam, but spammers have become more and more sophisticated lately, so they are trying their best to trick the unsuspecting users into opening malicious emails.

What does the installer file for Mole02 Ransomware look like? It usually looks like a genuine document file that the spam senders want you to open. For instance, it could look like an MS Word document or a PDF file. That is because the spam mails that distribute ransomware often look like official notifications from reputable companies. For example, some of the messages might try to make you think that they are official invoices from online stores. Or perhaps they look like financial reports from a bank. But it is always very easy to check whether they are legitimate or not. Have you recently bought anything from the said store? Do you actually have an account in the said bank? If both answers are no, you probably should not open that attached file.

Finally, if you are really curious about the information on the file, you can also scan it with a security program before opening it. If the file is malicious, your security application should warn you about it.

What does Mole02 Ransomware do?

Our research team says that this program probably belongs to the CryptoMix family. So it means that Mole02 Ransomware works very much like CryptoShield Ransomware and Revenge Ransomware. The thing with ransomware families, though, is that even if the programs from the same group a very similar, the decryption tool usually works only for one program in the family.

We are just lucky now that this program already has a public decryption tool available. Normally, it would not be possible to apply the same removal and decryption methods across several programs within the group.

From the program’s ransom note, we can see that it uses the usual ransomware methods to lock your files. It supposedly employs the RSA and AES encryption algorithms that scramble the information within your files. Once the encryption is complete, it is no longer possible to open any of the targeted files. Also, the program drops the ransom note in every folder that was affected by the encryption. The note reads as follows:


All of your files are encrypted with RSA 2048 and AES-128 ciphers.

More information about the RSA and AES can be found here:
