TEWKSBURY, Mass (Reuters) – When hackers set out to extort the town of Tewksbury, Massachusetts with “ransomware,” they followed up with an FAQ explaining the attack and easy instructions for online payment.

After balking for several days, Tewksbury officials decided that paying the modest ransom of about $600 was better than struggling to unlock its own systems, said police chief Timothy Sheehan.

That case and others show how cyber-criminals have professionalized ransomware schemes, borrowing tactics from customer service or marketing, law enforcement officials and security firms say.

If you need to fully erase the trace of the deleted file in your computer, you need to empty the Recycle Bin or delete that specific file from it. Once you delete the file there, it is now permanently deleted. However, the computer has a funny way of describing the file as being ‘permanently’ deleted. It isn’t really deleted permanently. In a sense, being deleted permanently just means that the file is still there but there is no way of reading the file.
