My files are crypted with Cerber Computer Virus

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.

Re: My files are crypted with Cerber Computer Virus

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

Re: My files are crypted with Cerber Computer Virus

While this answer may indeed be helpful, why on earth has it been promoted four times to the top of the thread?

I agree.

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.

From one post being promoted four times as a "helpful answer" to no helpful answers at all, what has happened?

I would expect one "helpful answer" being promoted once at least.
