Blackbaud ransomware attack may have impacted millions of Individuals

  • Nearly 200 organizations and millions of individuals may have been impacted by a security breach earlier this year that targeted Blackbaud Inc., a cloud computing company whose clients include nonprofits, healthcare companies and universities.
  • Blackbaud said it paid the hacker’s ransom demand in return for destruction of the stolen data, a decision some security experts speculate may encourage more ransomware attacks in the future.
  • Blackbaud said forensic investigation found that unencrypted fields intended for bank account information, Social Security numbers, usernames and passwords may have been compromised.
