Utah Food Bank security breach exposed thousands of donors’ info since October, 2013

Katie McKellar reports:

A security breach in the Utah Food Bank‘s website may have resulted in the disclosure of more than 10,000 donors’ personal information.

In a letter that was sent to a donor on Tuesday and obtained by the Deseret News, Utah Food Bank officials said they recently discovered that an “unauthorized individual” may have gained access to donation information submitted through the organization’s website between Oct. 8, 2013 and July 16, 2015.

Names, addresses, emails, credit or debit card numbers, security codes and expiration dates may have been exposed during that time period, the letter states.

Keep in mind that FTC’s data security enforcement authority does not extend to non-profits.

DataBreaches.net emailed Utah Food Bank to find out whether the security of their web site was provided by Xmission, whom they credit with providing Internet services, in-house, or out-sourced. DataBreaches.net will update this post as more information becomes available.
