Hi there,

Yesterday morning, while watching a movie, I've notice that all my file extension (word, excel, mp3,jpg etc) has changed to .B98C and pop-up screen shown that I've been infected by "Cerber Ransomware". I tried so many method to decrypt my file but back to square one.... can anyone help me...?

 

Thanks

Any files that are encrypted with the newest Cerber variant will be renamed (encrypted) with 10 random characters and have a random 4 character extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename (i.e. 1xQHJgozZM.b71c) and leave files (ransom notes) named README.hta...see here.

You can submit samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware for assistance with identification and confirmation. This is a service that helps identify what ransomware may have encrypted your files and then attempts to direct you to an appropriate support topic where you can seek further assistance. Uploading both encrypted files and ransom notes together provides a more positive match and helps to avoid false detections.

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.

Thanks
