BIN file extension - Alpha/Alfa ransomware affected file

What is bin file? How to open bin files?

File type specification:

Ransomware encrypted file type icon Ransomware encrypted file type

File extension bin seems to be also related to a ransomware labeled as Alpha or Alfa, from the "makers" of the Cerber ransomware. Much like similar ransomware, it encrypts users files and demands ransom to be paid in bitcoins (starts at 1 and increases every 3 days)

It seems to be primarily distributed via e-mails.

Help how to open BIN files:

Until someone makes a decryptor, there is really no way to access these files other than paying the ransom.

How to convert file with extension BIN:

You can only convert the original files once you have decrypted the files.
