Trend Micro released a Ransomware File Decryptor for victims of earlier Cerber v1 recognizable by the file being renamed (encrypted) with 10 random characters followed by the .cerber extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename (i.e. 2C1OlcaXdF.cerber) 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. If the tool does not work, it is most likly because the decrypter is not very effective. I am not aware of any other method at this time to decrypt files encrypted by Cerber v1.

Sorry to hear the tool did not work but just like paying the ransom, there is no guarantee these decrypter tools will work as intended. All you can do for now is just continue to save your data and wait for a possible solution...meaning, what seems like an impossibility at the moment (decryption of your data), there is always hope someday there may be a potential solution.

Security experts have had some success finding and exploiting flaws in ransomware allowing the creation of decryption tools. Law enforcement authorities have had some success arresting cyber-criminals, seizing C2 servers and releasing private RSA decryption keys to the public which enable security experts to create a decrypter tool. In some cases, the cyber-criminals, for whatever reason, choose to release the master keys after a period of time. Some of them have even
