Cerber 2 Ransomware: Free Decryption Tool Released

Check Point Software Technologies has released a free Cerber ransomware decryption tool that it says victims can download and use to restore forcibly encrypted files. Cerber 2, which first appeared in March, encrypts 455 files extensions, according to anti-ransomware forum Bleeping Computer. The tool analyzes the sample file the user uploads and generates a private decryption key for the user, which they can then unlock other files with. Many current versions of Cerber demand a ransom payment of 1 bitcoin, currently worth $570.”]
