Mole02 File?
« on: June 14, 2017, 06:03:16 pm »
Does this look more like a different mole file that the standard mole going around? I can't find much on this virus, any links are sources would be usefully if you can give any.

Thanks,
ZMan

Hello, @ZMan.

Yes, this is confirmed by malware researchers to be the new variant of MOLE ransomware and it appends the .MOLE02 extension like you have shown in the attached picture.
