The last thing you want to do is pay any kind of ransom. It only encourages these people to keep designing ransomware if they think it will pay off somehow.
Thankfully we are starting to break down and fix some of these types of viruses. Hoping Dino can wait out a cure for the Cerber variant.
For one, I am encouraged that Malwarebytes has a beta in progress.
