Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware is a devious Windows infection that enters your operating system using clandestine methods. Whether this program slithers in via a corrupted spam email attachment or gets downloaded by a malicious installer, it will hide itself until all of your personal files are encrypted. If this malicious infection successfully encrypts your personal files, it can proceed to demand a ransom from you. According to our research, at the moment, this ransom is 1.24 BTC, which is around 507 USD or 463 EUR. Every user is given 7 days to make the payment, and, if the payment is not made, the ransom supposedly rises to 2.48 BTC (~1014 USD/925 EUR). Note that the Bitcoin currency is quite unstable and the currency ratios fluctuate frequently. All in all, the sums are high, and it is unlikely that many victims have this kind of money lying around. Unfortunately, at the moment, it is impossible to decrypt personal files in other ways, which means that paying the ransom might be the only way to regain control over your files. Of course, this does not change the fact that you must remove Cerber Ransomware. Read more »

Unlike Trojans and some other malicious applications, it does not try to stay unnoticed after it infiltrates computers. Instead, it starts working immediately and locks files found on the affected system. In other words, it is typical crypto-malware that locks files with the purpose of extracting money from users. Do not send money to cyber criminals even if those files you need to access badly have been encrypted too because you will not only encourage malicious software developers to release more infections, but you might not even get the decryption tool from them.

It does not mean that you can keep the ransomware infection active on your system if you decide not to make a payment. If you do not disable it soon, you will see its ransom note opened automatically each time you restart your computer.
