RANSOMEWARE!!! All My Computer Files Encrypted and held to randsome by hackers by stiles009(m): 1:29am On Apr 21, 2017
Hello guys, I am in a serious dilemma. booting my system for the first time this morning, I was greeted with a message which read thus

" All your important files were encrypted on this computer.
You can verify this by click on see files an try open them.
Encryption was produced using unique public key RSA-1024 generated for this computer.
To decrypted files, you need to obtain private key.
The single copy of the private key, with will allow you to decrypt the files, is locate on a secret server on the internet.
The server will destroy the key within 78 hours after encryption completed.
To retrieve the private key, you need to Contact us by email , send us an email your DECRYPT-ID-29b5a3d0-c66f-4724-b5d1-322f92867f0e number
and wait for further instructions.
For you to be sure, that we can decrypt your files - you can send us a single encrypted file and we will send you back it in a decrypted form.
Please do not waste your time! You have 72 hours only! After that The Main Server will double your price!
E-MAILS ADRESS:
Poul.back@techie.com
poul.back@india.com"

also, all my files (music, videos, document, pictures, name it) have been encrypted to an extension of ".MOLE" and non seems to be opening no matter how much I tried opening it with the exception of already installed programs.

any help to unlock my files would be highly welcome.

Op, you downloaded a spam mail contain the .mole file extention ransomeware. It simply remodified your windows registry file and encrypted all your files with RSA 1024 key. If your window shadow copies have been deleted then you have no choice but to pay up.

I will advice you to quickly backup all your files as there might still be a chance of recovering your document.

Always backup your files regularly.

There's nothing you can do bro. If you have important files then pay if not then move on. It's not an "abeg" matter. The yahoo boy would probably be somewhere waiting for alert.

Next time if you must download anything from untrusted sender/website, do it with your phone
