Hello All
I am using windows 7, I was doing online medical insurance in the mean time my antvirus on trial version showed some notification regarding the unwanted entry which it blocked. Later I found all the files were encrypted with .cerber extension and three additional files wre included with '#DECRYPT MY FILES#' note in html, text, and bmp. I understood it was a virus attack. so I scaned with antivirus it cleaned but file remained encrypted. then I formatted the c/drive keeping all my file in f/drive. but no use. then searched in net then came to know it was a cerber  ransomeware.
Now I have come across with this forum and seen some rays of hope for getting back my files.
I have uploaded a small RAR file to the link (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php?channel=3)
I wanted to post some screenshots how can I do that?
Please help.

Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. Doing that will also ensure you receive proper assistance from our crypto malware experts since they may not see this thread. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
