Trend Micro released a Ransomware File Decryptor for victims of earlier Cerber v1 infections but it does not work on Cerber v2/v3 encrypted files or the newer v4x/v5x variants which use 10 random characters with a random 4 character (i.e. .b71c) extension. Unfortunately that means, there is still no way to decrypt files by these variants without paying the ransom.
I'd say restore the files from backup, but I guess you didn't back up?
