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. All of the charity’s computers were encrypted after being infected with a ransomware strain called GlobeImposter 2.0. 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. This incident serves as a reminder that cybercrime does not discriminate, which means that any organization can become the target of a ransomware attack or another type of cyber threat.
