Maoloa Ransomware

The Maoloa ransomware apparently appears to be a member of the GlobeImposter ransomware family. But it is not confirmed whether Maoloa is in fact part of the GlobeImposter family. But in a deeper look at the malware, it appears to be a variation of the Russian Scarab ransomware.

The first appearance of the group was in 2019, the group was offering its malware on forums on the Dark Web, this shows that apparently the group acts with the RaaS (Ransomware a as Service) tactic which is outsourcing attacks.

There are records of several attacks done by the group, the group has chosen to amplify their field of action, making people and companies become their targets.

The group authored an attack on a Romanian hospital in 2019. The group primarily uses spam email campaigns. These emails contain an executable file attached to it. After the file is downloaded, the ransomware is installed.

After installation, the ransomware immediately starts mapping the files that will be encrypted. The .maoloa extension is added to the affected files, but there are variations that add the .shelbyboom extension.

After the ransomware finishes the encryption a file with the name “HOW BACK YOUR FILES.txt” is generated in it and left with the terms for paying the ransom to get the files back. The group keeps the decryption key on a remote server.

Payment of the ransom is not recommended under any circumstances, today, there are options to payment such as recovery of encrypted data, done by specialized companies like Digital Recovery.

Ransomware Recovery FAQ

Every day, ransomware attacks get better and better. After a successful attack attempt, ransomware quickly maps the user’s most important files to begin encryption. Microsoft Office files, databases, PDFs and design are among its main targets.

Ransomware is designed to be unnoticeable, so it can disable all system defenses without being noticed and start the process of encrypting the files. Even though ransomware can go unnoticed by the system, it can still be noticed by the user, because ransomware uses the system’s own resources to do the encryption, this can slow down the system. Ransomware also changes file extensions. So be on the lookout for these signs: System slowdown and extensions being added to files.

Yes, it is possible. You can restart the computer in safe mode which will limit the ransomware’s action as system resources will be locked. You can also disconnect the computer from the Internet which can interrupt the hackers’ connection to your system, it is worth remembering that there is ransomware that works even without being connected to the Internet. You can also start the diagnostics to identify threats with your antivirus, the vast majority of antiviruses have this function.
But there are cases where the encryption was interrupted by the user, some files had already been affected and this caused an error in the encryption and even the hackers could not restore the files, even with the decryption key. In these cases only a data recovery company, such as Digital Recovery, can recover the files.
