Unfortunately, there is still no known way to decrypt files
encrypted by Cerber v2/v3
or newer v4x/v5x
and CRBR Encryptor
variants which use 10 random characters with a random 4 character hexadecimal extension (i.e. 1xQHJgozZM.b71c
) without paying the ransom. If possible, your best option is to restore from backups.
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.
When or if a decryption solution is found, that information will be provided in that 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.
