Food Bank Hit By Ransomware, Needs Your Charity to Rebuild

Auburn Food Bank, a non-profit in Auburn, Washington, suffered a ransomware attack on June 5.

The organization decided not to pay the ransom, and to wipe all devices on its network instead.

As a result, Auburn Food Bank now needs to rebuild its entire network. Because the non-profit doesn’t have sufficient funds to cover the expenses for this, it is calling on people to donate.
