I've been infected with the cerber virus version 3. I have some some samples of an encrypted file vs the same but unencrypted file. Here's a pastebin of one of my comparisons:




I noticed that Cerber leaves the first parts of a file unencrypted, in my analysis, the first ~500 chars are unchanged.


Is it possible for anyone to help me reverse engineer the encryption method since I have lost a lot of data to this...

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.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. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
