Save the Children hit by ransomware, 7TB stolen

published on 2023/09/13

Cybercrime crew BianLian says it has broken into the IT systems of a top nonprofit and stolen a ton of files, including what the miscreants claim is financial, health, and medical data.

As highlighted by VX-Underground and Emsisoft threat analyst Brett Callow earlier today, BianLian bragged on its website it had hit an organization that, based on the gang's description of its unnamed victim, looks to be Save The Children International. The NGO, which employs about 25,000 people, says it has helped more than a billion kids since it was founded in 1919.
