Decryption is only possible for some cases of Troldesh infection. Kaspersky and Intell Security (McAfee) have released decryption tools for encrypted data which work on some Troldesh (Shade) variants.

There are several different variants of Cerber Ransomware with different file extensions appended to the end of encrypted filenames and ransom notes. Trend Micro released a Ransomware File Decryptor for victims of earlier Cerber v1 infections but it has limitations...must be used on the infected machine, may take several hours to complete decryption, some files may be only partially decrypted. Trend Micro's decryptor does not work on Cerber v2/v3 encrypted files or the newer v4x/v5x and CRBR Encryptor variants which use 10 random characters with a random 4 character hexadecimal extension (i.e. 1xQHJgozZM.b71c). Unfortunately that means, there is no known method to decrypt files by these variants[/b] without paying the ransom. If possible, your best option is to restore from backups, try file recovery software or wait for a possible solution at a later time.
