Labour list, the right wing, establishment funded Starmer supporting blog reports the following:
The Labour Party has told members that it has launched an investigation following a data breach in which a “historic backup file containing personal information was stolen by a cybercriminal”.
In an email to a number of members this afternoon, the party described how one of its suppliers – a company called Blackbaud – had “been the victim of a sophisticated ransomware attack, which occurred earlier this year”.
The message from the party was only sent to members affected by the breach. LabourList understands that it was received by around 3% of the overall membership and that the breach covers a period that goes back several years.
Labour has stressed that “no sensitive information, such as bank account information, passwords or usernames, was taken”. According to the email sent by the party this afternoon, the information affected includes:
- Email addresses;
- Telephone numbers; and
- Amounts donated to the Labour Party.
In the correspondence, Labour has said that the supplier’s security experts have investigated the incident and that the company has received assurances that the personal information was deleted after the payment of a ransom.
The party said that it is “working closely with Blackbaud, as well as our governance, legal, data protection and IT teams to gather more information about the breach” and has reported the breach to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
So that’s OK then? All your private information has been stolen accept your bank account. How convenient for the Blair/Starmer cabal.
