Southern Environmental Law Center hacked

CBS in Birmingham, Alabama reports a breach involving the Southern Environmental Law Center. The station reports that credit card information, medical information and donor information were acquired and dumped on the Internet, although at the time of this posting, I’m not seeing any data dumps. Personal details also reportedly include addresses, phone, numbers, and client files.

The SELC released a statement:

We have reported it to the FBI, and will take any action necessary to address the breach and the unauthorized release of confidential information. The SELC has been the victim of a major internet security breach in which highly confidential information was taken without consent or authorization.
