What is characteristic for the 5.0.1 version of the Cerber virus is that it is not very different in comparison to other updates of Cerber. In fact, the malware may be distributed via the very same RIG-V exploit kit, typical for the 5th version of Cerber. The software can easily and quickly convert all the imported files, while offering you the possibility to select several output formats, not just one.
This means that Cerber ransomware may use .hta, or files with which it can cause an infection via a spam message sent out to the users, just like it’s older versions did.
But another method of the infection being caused is also via malicious web links uploaded online and sent out as a message on either social media or other places that favor third-party web links.
