Washington D.C. Think Tank Hacked – 700,000 Charities at Risk
“The Urban Institute, a prominent Washington D.C. based think tank which provides research articles for nonprofits on management and governance, disclosed that the organization’s National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS) network has been the subject of a major breach event that compromised sensitive information for up to 700,000 charities.
The attackers infiltrated the Form 990 Online and e-Postcard filing systems for nonprofit organizations, gaining access to first and last names, email addresses, IP addresses, phone numbers and account usernames and passwords. Users of Form 8868 extensions and filings in at least three states will also be affected by the breach.”
