Maoloa Ransomware

Maoloa ransomware apparently appears to be a member of the GlobeImposter ransomware family. But it is not confirmed if 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 made by the group, the group chose to amplify their scope of action, making people and companies become their targets.

The group was the author of an attack on a Romanian hospital in 2019. The group mainly 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 named “HOW BACK YOUR FILES.txt” is generated in which it leaves the terms for ransom payment to recover the files. The group keeps the decryption key on a remote server.

The payment of ransom is not recommended under any circumstances, today, there are options to payment as the recovery of encrypted data, made by specialized companies such as 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 go unnoticed, so it can disable all system defences without being noticed and start the process of encrypting files. Even if ransomware goes unnoticed by the system, it can be noticed by the user, as it uses system resources to perform the encryption, which can slow down the system. Ransomware also changes file extensions. So look out for these signs: slowing down the system and adding extensions to files. To find out more, talk to our experts.
Yes, this is possible. You can restart the computer in safe mode, which will limit the action of the ransomware since the system resources will be locked. You can also disconnect the computer from the Internet, which can interrupt the hackers’ connection to your system, it should be noted that there are ransomwares that work even without being connected to the Internet. You can also run diagnostics to identify threats with your antivirus software, the vast majority of antivirus software 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 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. To find out more, talk to our experts.
Yes, the attacks mainly take place on holidays and weekends, in the early hours of the morning. These days are chosen because there are not many active users on the system, making it impossible to discover the attack before the encryption is complete. To find out more, talk to our experts.
The vast majority of ransomware uses RSA [Rivest-Shamir-Adleman] -2048 and AES [Advanced Encryption Standard] encryption. To find out more, talk to our experts.
First of all, do not pay the ransom. No matter what the hackers say, there is no guarantee that the decryption key will actually be released after the ransom is paid. The first thing to do is to inform the authorities about the attack. Governments have specialised cybercrime departments that will investigate the attack. Next, check if your backups have been affected, if so, only a specialist data recovery company can recover your files, this is the next step. Contact Digital Recovery who will assist you in the full recovery of your files. To find out more, talk to our experts.
After contacting us and sending the affected media, we will diagnose the device to verify the extent of the damage caused by the ransomware, which will allow us to predict the duration of the process and provide the client with a budget. Once the budget is approved by the client, we begin the recovery process, for which we have proprietary software that can, with the help of our specialists, reconstruct the data. If the client opts for remote recovery, instead of sending us the media, they will send the encrypted files to a virtual environment, totally secure, so that we can access them. At the end of the process, we will perform a double check so that the customer can verify the integrity of the recovered files. Payment is only made once the files have been delivered and validated by the client. To find out more, talk to our experts.
