Childrens’ personal details hacked in Sutton Park donkey sanctuary cyber-attack

Just in case anyone says to you ” we are too small/unimportant to get hacked”…:

Hackers may have seized childrens’ personal details after targeting the charity behind a popular city attraction.

Supporters of The Donkey Sanctuary have been told that information including names, addresses and contact details were accessed.

The organisation runs a long-established sanctuary in Sutton Park, which is popular with children – including those with special needs. It allows them to adopt an animal and and provides therapy for those with disabilities.

The company said in the letter: “We have recently been informed that Blackbaud, the company that supplies our database software, was the victim of a cyber-attack that has affected us and many other organisations.
