My doc , picture files , pdf and ppt files have all been encrypted by cerber ransomware and the extension has been changed to .a83c. Is there a tool to decrypt these?

Unfortunately, there is still no known way to decrypt files encrypted by Cerber v2/v3/ or the newer 10 random characters with a random 4 character ((i.e. .b71c) extension without paying the ransom. Victims have reported that Trend Micro's decryption tool does not work on these variants.

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.When or if a solution is found, that information will be provided in the above support topic and you will receive notification if subscribed to it. In addition, a news article most likely will be posted on the BleepingComputer front page.

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
