It is always great to be able to announce a free decryptor for victim's who have had their files encrypted by a ransomware. This is the case today, where we have a decryptor being released for the Mole02 CryptoMix Ransomware variant. This decryptor was created by security researcher M AV of STIGroup, Ltd. and with the help of Secarma Threat Intel team's Charley Celice
Using this decryptor, victims of the Mole02 variant are able to recover their files for free. Instructions on how to use the decryptor can be found below and if anyone needs support using the decryptor they can ask in the Mole02/CryptoMix Help and Support Topic.
Victims of the Mole02 CryptoMix Ransomware variant can be identified by their files being encrypted and renamed to the format of [renamed_filename].MOLE02. For example, an encrypted file could have a name like 26E14BA00B70A5D0AE4EBAD33D3416B0.MOLE02. An example of a folder of encrypted files is seen below:
