Windows 7: System has been infected from CERBER RANSOMWARE, how to recover data

Unfortunately, as already stated, there is no current solution for decryption of v3 of Cerber Ransomware.
Following the BleepingComputer topic, as was suggested, and keeping a copy of your encrypted data is recommended.
Since Shadow Copies is not an option, you might try a recovery program, to see if anything can be recovered. Some have reported some success with Recuva, R-Studio, Phoeorec, DiskDigger (from Hiren's CD). If you have pictures on Google Photos, they should be available. Data on OneDrive or Dropbox can be recovered by way of file history. I have heard that KrollOntrack may be able to recover files, but this is a recovery process as well, and not a decryption process, and is a paid service.

Just a thought.

If the email attachment did cause the problem I would recommend advising the sender of the email so it does not get sent any more. Of course I'm assuming that the attachment was sent to you by someone you/employee know and that is the reason you/someone opened it.
