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 »

Fireee Ransomware

Fireee Ransomware

Fireee Ransomware is an extremely deceptive infection. First of all, it uses deception to invade Windows operating systems, which, by the way, usually happens with their users’ interaction.

Decme Ransomware

Decme Ransomware

Decme Ransomware is a malicious application that could take away your photos, documents, and other important files you may keep on your computer. The malware encrypts such data with strong encryption. As a result, the affected files become unreadable and cannot be opened.

Unfortunately, there are no reassurances that cybercriminals will hold on to their end of the bargain. Therefore, we advise you not to pay the ransom if you do not want to risk getting scammed. You can learn more about the malware and its ransom note further in this article.

CVC Ransomware

CVC Ransomware

CVC Ransomware is an infection that was designed to take over your personal documents, pictures, and other files that you have either created yourself or acquired from external sources and parties. The point is to corrupt files that are considered unique. For example, system files are not unique because they can be replaced. Unique documents or photos might be impossible to replace, unless copies exist. If copies do not exist, the attackers behind the infection have a better chance of completing the attack. They encrypt files, which means that they are not completely destroyed or deleted. In theory, every encrypted file should be decryptable, and files are encrypted with the sole purpose of selling a decryptor. So, how does this malware work, and what can you do if your files were corrupted? We hope that you can find answers to these questions and learn how to remove CVC Ransomware by reading this report.
