I get hit by cerber ransomware, the file all become into the format with .9cfa format, can any one help me? and this is the note at below:

 

 
 -----
 
 !!! CERBER RANSOMWARE !!!
 
 -----
 
 YOUR DOCUMENTS, PHOTOS, DATABASES AND OTHER IMPORTANT FILES HAVE BEEN ENCRYPTED
 
 -----
 
 The only way to decrypt your files is to receive the private key and decryption program.
 
 To receive the private key and decryption program go to any decrypted folder, 
 inside there is the special file (*_READ_THIS_FILE_*) with complete instructions 
 how to decrypt your files.
 
 If you cannot find any (*_READ_THIS_FILE_*) file at your PC, follow the instructions below:
 
 -----
 
 1. Download "Tor Browser" from https://www.torproject.org/ and install it.
 
 2. In the "Tor Browser" open your personal page here:
 
 
 Note! This page is available via "Tor Browser" only.
 
 -----
 
 Also you can use temporary addresses on your personal page without using "Tor Browser".
 
 -----
 
 
 
 
 
 
 -----
 
 Note! These are temporary addresses! They will be available for a limited amount of time!

Thanks Everyone.

Any files that are encrypted with Cerber v4x/v5x will be renamed (encrypted) with 10 random characters followed by a random 4 character hexadecimal extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename (i.e. 1xQHJgozZM.b71c) and leave files (ransom notes) named README.hta, README.html, _HEJDDP_README_.hta, _READ_THIS_FILE_<random hexadecimal>.html (i.e _5M6C2B8.html), _HELP_HELP_HELP_<random hexadecimal>.hta (i.e _5M6C2B8.hta) as explained here. Any files that are encrypted with Cerber v5x will also include a few new changes as explained here.

Trend Micro released a Ransomware File Decryptor for victims of earlier Cerber v1 infections but it has limitations. BloodDolly explains wny the decrypter is not very effective. Unfortunately, there is still no known way to decrypt files encrypted by Cerber v2/v3 or newer v4x/v5x variants which use 10 random characters with a random 4 character hexadecimal extension (i.e. 1xQHJgozZM.b71c) without paying the ransom.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic victims you can post comments, 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
