Hello. Can you please give me an advise what I have to do to decrypt my files. All files are crypted with Cerber Virus. I can not open them. How can I clean my pc and what tools can I use? Are there some free tools for decryption? Thank you.
Hi. If your files are crypted with Cerber Ransomware you need a Master Key (special password). If your files are crypted with the latest version of this virus, may be you have a luck. According to a german antivirus-site Virus-Entferner the latest version does not block the shadow copies: https://www.virus-entferner.de/2017/02/10/red-cerber-2017-trojan-virus-entfernen/ . It means, you can try the Shadow Explorer tool. May be you can not restore all crypted files but some of them. I wish you good luck!
Ouch painful, well lets hope he has backups of all his important files because from reading that its likely to be a more recent version of the virus which doesn't have a tool for decrypting files, always pays to have decent anti-virus and backups
And you can easily create a new virii just by adjusting a few lines of code and maybe a new header or stub and repack with a UD crypter. Some of the decryptor tools work because Skiddies are taking the source and recompiling it as is and hoping to hit gold with zero effort.
