Cerber Ransomware is a devious Windows infection that enters your operating system using clandestine methods. Whether this program slithers in via a corrupted spam email attachment or gets downloaded by a malicious installer, it will hide itself until all of your personal files are encrypted. If this malicious infection successfully encrypts your personal files, it can proceed to demand a ransom from you. According to our research, at the moment, this ransom is 1.24 BTC, which is around 507 USD or 463 EUR. Every user is given 7 days to make the payment, and, if the payment is not made, the ransom supposedly rises to 2.48 BTC (~1014 USD/925 EUR). Note that the Bitcoin currency is quite unstable and the currency ratios fluctuate frequently. All in all, the sums are high, and it is unlikely that many victims have this kind of money lying around. Unfortunately, at the moment, it is impossible to decrypt personal files in other ways, which means that paying the ransom might be the only way to regain control over your files. Of course, this does not change the fact that you must remove Cerber Ransomware.
If you are unlucky enough to face email@example.com Ransomware, you need to take action right away. If you are able to uncover the disguise of this malicious threat quickly, you just might be able to delete the launcher file before the infection is fully executed. The threat is likely to be introduced to you with the help of software bundles or spam emails, and so you might have a chance to eliminate the file. If you do not realize that a seemingly harmless file you downloaded and opened belongs to malware, the malicious infection can move on to encrypt your personal files. Once they are encrypted, you cannot rename them or change them in any way to make them readable again. The decryptor that the creator of the ransomware should produce, could not have been obtained, and legitimate file decryptors are powerless against the cryptor of this malware. So, if your files were encrypted, you are in a very sticky situation. All in all, regardless of the outcome, it is a must to remove firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware, and that is what we discuss in this report.
