"Aid to the Church in Need", 2000 donors to charity, "personal details"
Not sure if the personal details obtained by hackers include CC#s, but names and addresses are certainly involved in this breach at a UK charity. A couple of interesting twists to this one, as reported at Silicon.com. First, the thieves weren’t content with just stealing the info — they used it to extort victims directly:
the hackers have used these details to contact the benefactors directly to try and extract more money
Second, the National Director of the charity makes a trenchant observation:
Apart from the obvious distress to benefactors, we’re concerned that our charity identity has been stolen. However it’s the beneficiaries, those who need the money the most, who will ultimately suffer.
In other words, get breached and your brand gets damaged. Get breached, and your revenue drops. Less money coming in means less aid to the needy going out.
