Hi there,

The real CryptoLocker is dead a long time ago - you are infected with a copycat.

Does your files have any extensions added to them? Are there any ransom notes (text files containing instructions on how to get your files back) and what are their names?

There is no ransom note just websites to go to. All the files are encrypted.

The text file containing the instructions to get your files back (which site to go, how much to pay etc.) is a ransom note. The name of the note can be used to identify which ransomware you have.

You can see this post for a list of example traces to identify ransomware variants.

And once you have identified which particular ransomware you are dealing with, we can direct you to the appropriate discussion topic for further assistance.

I removed hundreds of HELPDecrypt files until the ransom note From 1/22/15 no longer appears. But now my browser will not connect to Internet and I have mouomak extension locking all my files. What can I do to get Internet and download utilities.

Is the actual file name HELPDecrypt.txt or did you leave out the (_)? If so that may be something new since I now understand you to mean the encrypted files have a .mouomak extension.

CryptoWall 3.0 leaves files (ransom notes) named HELP_DECRYPT.TXT, HELP_DECRYPT.HTML, and HELP_DECRYPT.PNG.

A repository of all current knowledge regarding CryptoWall, CryptoWall 2.0 & CryptoWall 3.0 is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this topic: CryptoWall and DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

If you need individual assistance with malware infection, you should start a new topic in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum

OR follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide. When you have done that, start a new topic and post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.
