Hackers crack U.S. charities' subscribers
by UPI

AUSTIN, Texas -- The e-mail address databases of subscribers to more than 150 U.S. charities and non-profits have been hacked, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

The breach was discovered Nov. 1 in the newly acquired GetActive division of Convio Inc., of Austin, Texas, the report said. Convio informed 92 charities of the leak on Nov. 3 and a week later told a further 62 non-profits.

The company said only e-mail addresses and log-in passwords were affected and no personal or financial information had been hacked.

Among the charities affected were CARE, the American Museum of Natural History and the American Red Cross, which said as many as 278,000 e-mail addresses had been compromised, the Times reported.

Another group affected was United Animal Nations, whose president and chief executive, Nicole Forsyth, told the newspaper had taken a hit from the loss after notifying some of its 20,000 subscribers.

"We've had losses," she said. "About 2 percent of our online subscribers have unsubscribed."
