Any files that are encrypted with Mobef Ransomware
will have the .KEYZ
extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename and leave files (ransom notes) named with the infection date plus -INFECTION.TXT (i.e. 4-29-2016-INFECTION.TXT) and date000.KEY, -Pleaseread.me and -thisisa.key000. Other variants may leave files named ENCRYPT1ON.KEY123, HELLOREADME14.TXT, HELLOWREADME15.TXT, 1NFORMAT1ONFOR.YOU, HITLERSLITTLECRYPTER.KEY14, HITLERSNASTYLITTLECRYPTER.KEY17, HITLERSNASTYLITTLECRYPTER.KEY15, HELLOREADME15.TXT, HITLERSLITTLECRYPTER.KEY13 as reported here
You can submit samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware
for assistance with identification and confirmation. This is a service that helps identify what ransomware may have encrypted your files and then attempts to direct you to an appropriate support topic where you can seek further assistance. Uploading both encrypted files and ransom notes together provides a more positive match and helps to avoid false detections.
Unfortunately, there is no known way
at this time to decrypt files encrypted by Mobef without paying the ransom.
There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.
Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
