Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware

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. Read more »

Uta Ransomware

Uta Ransomware

It is crucial to have files backed up outside their original location. Uta Ransomware proves that. This malicious infection encrypts files, and if it does that successfully, the attackers behind it are free to make any demands. Those who have backups can easily replace the corrupted files once they remove the infection. However, if backups do not exist, the victims might be more willing to do whatever the attackers want them to do. Most likely, that would entail paying money in order to obtain decryption software or tools. Even though that is what the attackers might have promised you already, you want to be very cautious about what you do. Unfortunately, you are unlikely to get the decryptor if you follow the instructions of cybercriminals behind the ransomware. Therefore, we want to focus on deleting Uta Ransomware. Hopefully, you have backups that can replace the encrypted files, and so you do not need to worry about what could happen to your documents, photos, videos, and other personal files. Read more »
