Ransomware not only Encrypts Your Data But Also Speaks to You

A ransomware called Cerber has been floating around for about a week, but we were not able to retrieve a sample until today. Thanks to @BiebsMalwareGuy and @MeegulWorth, samples were found and further analysis of the ransomware could be done.  When infected, a victim's data files will be encrypted using AES encryption and will be told they need to pay a ransom of 1.24 bitcoins or ~500 USD to get their files back. Unfortunately, at this point there is no known way to decrypt a victim's encrypted files for free.

At this time we do not currently know how the Cerber ransomware is being distributed, but according to SenseCy, it is being offered as a service on a closed underground Russian forum. This means that it is probably a new Ransomware as a Service, or RaaS, where affiliates can join in order to distribute the ransomware, while the Cerber developers earn a commission from each ransom payment.

For anyone who is infected with this ransomware or wants to discuss the infection, we have a dedicated support topic here: CERBER Ransomware Support and Help Topic.  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/606583/cerber-ransomware-support-and-help-topic-decrypt-my-files-htmltxtvbs/

Getting best body with balance exercise and diet:

People who want reduce enormous amount of fat, they can take the below ideas and impose that in their day to day activity.

There are few rules need to be understand first. Fat and muscle weigh the same, but looks different. People who wants to reduce the fat, they can build lean muscle. Because, muscle burn more calories than fat.

Doing heavy number of reps with lite weight will gives more effective look without bulking. No need of cardio and other boring stuffs. People can feel the difference in two or three weeks.
Lats pulling, normal dumbbell workout, squats with lite weight will give you best results.

We need to understand calorie calculations:
If 3500 calories burned during exercise, it means you used one pound fat for it.
So, 7000 calories mean one kg body fat.

Best way or recommended way to reduce the fat is balance of weight training and dieting.
Target each day with 250 calorie from diet and 250 calorie from weight training. The impact will be the best.
It is recommended to consume more negative calorie foods in your diet and it will act as catalyst in the fat reduction.

Vegetables on the negative calorie food list are: Asparagus, Bean
sprouts, Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery,
Chicory/Radicchio, Cucumbers, Endives, Green beans, Jicama, Kale, Leeks,
 Lettuce, Radishes, Spinach, Squash

Fruits on the negative calorie food list are: Apples, Blueberries, Cantaloupe, Cranberries,
 Grapefruits, Honeydew, Lemons/Limes, Mangoes, Oranges, Papaya, Peaches,
 Pineapple, Raspberries, Strawberries, Tangerines, Watermelon.

Note: If you want more result. Then, add skipping the rope exercise. It is full body cardio and conditioning. Famous boxers and body builders do skipping the rope for full body conditioning.
Muhammad Ali do 180 skipping count in a minute. Similarly, Franco Columbu done skipping the rope at nearly same speed.

How long can someone survive without food?

This is very wonderful explanation given by Niroshan. He gave the explanation in Tamil language (one of the Indian language).

Here its rough translation:

How long can someone survive without food?

Its not immediate death for starving. Normally, people can easily live for 2-3 days without any food or water.

Without oxygen : 5-10 minutes, people can live
Without water: 2-7  days, people can live.

Without any food : 2 months (no disease- can live )

starving lead to 3 stages for living:

Stage 1:  glucose from last food..
25% energy... used by brain...

Stage 2: lipids are broken and a condition characterized by raised levels of ketone bodies in the body, associated with abnormal fat metabolism and diabetes mellitus.
only for brain, heart and important function

Stage 3: brain started consuming less glucose.
if all ketone body empty, then all amino bodies eaten up for energy.

Our body is very amazing, not one back up plan, actually 3 back up plans for starving.
